Is there a lot of crime in Tortola?

Answer this Question

We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Tortola, the largest of the British Virgin Islands, generally enjoys a low crime rate. However, like any other place, it is not entirely free from crime. Petty crimes such as theft and burglary are the most common, especially in tourist areas. Violent crimes are relatively rare, but they do occur occasionally. Drug-related crimes are also a concern, given the island's location along drug trafficking routes. The local police force actively works to maintain safety and security on the island. Visitors are advised to take standard precautions to protect their belongings and personal safety. Despite these issues, Tortola remains a popular and generally safe destination for tourists," said another expat in Tortola, the British Virgin Islands.
