Crime in the town of Bedford is up.
In fact, according to the Virginia State Police, the town has the highest rate of crimes per capita in Virginia.
But those numbers are a bit misleading – according to the report itself.
For 2014, the VSP report states that the town averaged 11,735 crimes per 100,000 people. Of course, Bedford doesn’t have close to that number of people – but it does have more than the report states.
