Mobile County was named after the Maubila, an Indian tribe, and was established on December 18, 1812. Its name was believed to be derived from Fort Louis de la Mobile as well as the city of Mobile, which is the county seat. The county is situated in the southwestern portion of Alabama and its total population according to the 2009 census was 411,721.
This county, which has the oldest city in the state as well as the most populated urban area, has a grim situation in regards to crime. Yes, the county is undeniably prosperous, but behind that lurks the menacing trend of increasing crime. Terribly, the county has more than ten thousand drug abuse arrests which increase each and every day. Also, more than five hundred sex offenders were found living in Mobile County.
