While we didn't meet the population threshold of 10,000+ residents to be included on this particular list (they show us at 9,265 residents but we believe we're actually several hundred higher... which would make our numbers even better!), our crime rate numbers would put Sumpter Township at approximately #25.

Our crime rates per 1,000 residents are as follows:

Violent Crime = .75 (yes you read that right, .75!)
Property Crime = 10.04

By comparison, the averages for the State of Michigan are:

Violent Crime = 6.11
Property Crime = 23.98

As to our standing compared to neighboring communities, Canton Township is #38 (1.69 & 11.48 respectively), Huron Township is #44 (1.17 & 12.67), Van Buren Township is #84 (3.88 & 23.39) and Romulus comes in at # 111 (7.25 & 29.38).

Belleville, who also doesn't meet the population threshold to be included on this list has a crime rate of 1.55 violent & 23.32 property.

These excellent crime rates for Sumpter Township would not be possible but for the great partnership between the department and you, the residents we proudly serve. We thank you for being vigilant partners and reporting all suspicious activity.
