Deputies, Cops Assigned To Protect Swamp Rabbit Trail

Posted:
By Staff

Greenville County Deputies are hitting the trail to keep citizens safe.

Two full time deputies will patrol Swamp Rabbit Trail during peak usage times.  The officers will patrol on both motorcycles and bicycles.

Swamp Rabbit Trail attracts nearly 1200 people daily.  The 13.5 mile-long trail goes from downtown Greenville to Travelers Rest.    

Investigators say they have not had any reports of violent crimes  on the trail since it opened about a year ago.

County leaders pushed and financed the project.

The county spent $229,000 on the launch, $180,000 on the two deputies salaries, and about $45,000 on the BMW motorcyclists and bicycles.

They say about 12-hundred people use the trail daily and they expect that number to grow as the trail grows.
