First, let me say coming into Camden on U.S. 1, S.C. 34 and U.S. 521 from Sumter are really well kept. Leaving the Camden city limits on U.S. 521/601 North (however), one can get air under their seat crossing Sanders Creek. I also see after a heavy rain, the standing water across from Peck Woods Road is going to hurt somone and cause a major accident. And I haven't mentioned the bone jarring bumps every 15 yards all the way to Westville.

The city of Camden saw a slight uptick in the number of incidents reported to the Camden Police Department (CPD), but that does not necessarily indicate an increase in crime. If anything, the number of reports probably indicates diligence in both the community and the police department. That seems to be the takeaway from this year's annual CPD crime statistics report presented to Camden City Council during its April 26 meeting.
