I enjoy riding my bike and like riding the Silver Comet Trail. I live right nearby in Marietta. I've been thinking of retirement and changed my original thoughts of North Georgia Mountains to looking for a low maintenance ranch within a very short ride or drive from the SCT. I'd like to keep it close in enough so family from Lawrenceville doesn't have to head way out to Cedartown. So maybe somewhere along Dallas, Hiram or Rockmart. I checked city-data for Rockmart and saw that the crime rate is nuts. Very high. But the only parts of Rockmart I'm familiar with is the park by the trail, historic downtown and a little subdivision before the ball field. So - is there a section of Rockmart that is especially bad? Are you safe in certain parts of Rockmart? What's with that crime rate? Real estate prices looked pretty nice. Saw some nice homes. The thought of downsizing (and downpricing) is really enticing. But theft or violent crime is kind of something I'd like to avoid.

I've also been thinking of Dallas or Hiram, but don't think real estate prices would be much different from Marietta, so I don't think I'd be able to get into a significantly less expensive house in either city.

Go back and look closer at the chart. The only category of crime that’s really high is theft, and it’s been on the rise since 2007. Theft is the broadest form of property crime and includes shoplifting. A super Wal-Mart opened in Rockmart in 2007.

And that’s what’s with the crime rate in Rockmart.

well, I would say Blairsville GA has the highest crime rate, but crime Never gets reported. Bad people can commit crimes right out in the open and nothing is ever done. I'll try not to say to much, but this is the best place to abuse your wife or any woman in your family or any one for that matter. If your the one that's getting abused there's No where to one, family won't help you and there's No homeless shelter.

You can sign your wife up for hospice and forge her name without her knowing and she die because of it, well in this town that's just fine.

I spent about 4 months in Rockmart, and spent a lot of time around the town at all hours of the day and night. I wouldn't worry too much about the crime there. Theft is the major problem there but as long as you take preventative measures (don't leave anything in your car, get an alarm system and at least a doorbell camera, etc) you should be just fine. Rockmart is a great little town with an active community, nice older homes, nice public green space, and a nice little coffee shop and other shops in the historic downtown area.
