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

"Yes, unfortunately the crime rate is fairly high. The Murder rate is extremely high for the population. Most of the crime happens in the sketchy areas and is drug or gang related so does not affect us directly. However be careful with your money in town as robberies are fairly common for those who do not take precautions," said a member in New Providence, Bahamas.

"The Bahamas is generally considered to be a safe destination with a low crime rate, particularly when compared to other Caribbean countries. However, crimes such as theft and taxi scams still occur in Nassau and Freeport, the country’s two largest cities. In particular, tourists should take care to protect their belongings when walking through unknown neighborhoods or when using public transportation. Additionally, petty street crime such as pickpocketing and purse-snatching is on the rise in certain areas, so travelers should always be aware of their surroundings," remarked another expat who made the move to Bahamas.
