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

"There is very little crime. I feel much safer here than I did in California. Walking my dogs at midnight doesn't worry me at all," remarked another expat in Salamanca, Spain.

"Spain is generally considered to be a safe country with relatively low levels of crime. Violent crime is rare and most common crimes occur at a local level, such as pickpocketing or petty theft. Tourist areas are particularly targeted, so visitors should remain vigilant of their surroundings. Additionally, organized crime exists in the larger cities of Spain, but the areas where it occurs are quite specific and unlikely to be visited by tourists," said a member in Spain.
