Is there a lot of crime in Laos?

Answer this Question

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

"Crime is not a major problem in Laos, however, there are some reports of petty theft and other minor crimes. The most common crimes reported are pickpocketing, bag snatching, and other forms of theft. There have also been reports of drug trafficking and human trafficking in some areas. The government has taken steps to combat these crimes, including increased police presence and increased penalties for those convicted of such crimes," remarked another expat who made the move to Laos.
