More Information About South Portland, Maine

South Portland is a city in Cumberland County, Maine. As its name implies, it sits on the southern border of Portland. However, South Portland was never a part of the main city – it was carved out of neighboring Cape Elizabeth in the 19th century. With a population of 25,002 in the 2010 census, South Portland is the fourth-largest city in Maine, behind Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor. Situated on the banks of Portland Harbor, South Portland has become a shipping hub, with a very active harbor.

Its close proximity to Portland has meant that many of the people who can afford to live in the city’s suburbs reside in South Portland. As a result, South Portland is a relatively wealthy area for the state of Maine: Its median household income in 2013 was $50,374, slightly higher than the state average of $46,974.

However, South Portland still suffers from the same crime rates as the neighboring city to the north does, with property crime rates near the national average. Despite the high property crime rates, though, violent crimes in South Portland are still significantly below the national average. In an effort to keep the crime rates low, South Portland’s police force is significantly larger than the state average, with 2.15 full-time law enforcement officers per 1,000 residents. The state average for Maine is 1.69 officers.

Location of Court

 

If you get arrested in South Portland for a crime, including for operating under the influence (OUI), then your case will be heard at the Portland Unified Criminal Court.
