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

"There is some crime in France, but overall it is considered fairly safe, particularly compared to other countries. Crime rates in some major cities, such as Paris, are higher than in other parts of the country, with pickpocketing and other petty crimes being most common. There are also higher levels of organized crime, drug trafficking, and gang-related violence in some parts of the country. France has implemented various measures to combat crime, including increased police presence and tougher laws," explained one expat living in France.
