Dougherty County School System experienced a rise of violent crimes on both their high and middle school campuses between 2000 and 2004. But due to poor record keeping, school officials didn't know how bad the situation was. In 2004 there were 5.5 violent incidents resulting in at least one arrest, for every 1,000 students, compared to neighboring Lee County, where the rate was only .56 violent incidents resulting in arrest, for every 1,000 students.
