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

"Crime is a significant concern in Germany, as it is in many places around the world. Reports of various types of crime, from pickpocketing to theft to violent crimes, are common throughout the country. However, Germany is considered relatively safe, thanks to the effectiveness of its law enforcement agencies and its conscientious anti-crime initiatives," said another expat in Germany.

"Where we live there is hardly no crime. But in Cologne, which is some 55 Kilometers away, there is quite a bit. In all the big cities here, especially Berlin, there is a large amount of crime. Where there are migrational community, i.e. Turkish, there is a lot," wrote a member who made the move to Eifel , Germany.
