Violent crime went down in Charlotte under Pat McCrory's tenure.
At the same time, the city's population increased from 544,146 to 733,291.
That means the per capita crime rate also dropped, from 1,696 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in 1995 to 986 violent crimes per 100,000 in 2007.
Property crime also went down.
From 1995 to 2007, the number of burglaries, larcenies and motor vehicle thefts reported to the FBI went up from 42,882 to 51,279.
But that was still below population growth.
That means the per capita crime rate dropped, from 7,881 property crimes per 100,000 residents in 1995 to 6,993 property crimes per 100,000 in 2007.
