I'll start the discussion by pointing out that the City-data profile on Mayodan show the crime rate very low in 2001, fluctuating, and the latest 2011 crime rate is higher than the national average. However, the major type of crime is theft, and the violent crime level is lower.

There are certainly safer towns and rural areas nearby: Walnut Cove and King, and probably others. One nearby place with a bad reputation is Eden.

I am assuming you are interested in the Ruger plant, and I think the influx of jobs probably will improve the quality of life in the area.

Thank you for this info. I had been told it was iffy but sure didnt know.
Jobs are not an issue for us, but being safe is.
Not sure I will now,the crime is on the rise since we live in a very low crime area currently.

This is a very safe area...understand that almost all of Rockingham county is an easy commute to Mayodan.

Many people live in communities that you won't recognize as towns...such as Bethany, but they are great places to live.

I think the biggest crime these days is people stealing fancy riding lawnmowers out of storage sheds.
