Are there personal security concerns to be aware of at this post? Please describe.

There are some home burglaries, so use your house alarms and make sure to lock your doors. Keep your wallet secure, or someone will help themselves to it. There have been some issues with Americans being sought out and attacked. Use common sense and follow what you are told in the security briefing. - Jul 9, 2016
None. A recent security notice from the Embassy warned of a demonstration held by something like 50 public school teachers protesting some issue - the teachers were on bikes, with children holding balloons, probably handing out free licorice while they went down the street. Ah, life in Denmark. - May 1, 2014
No. Safer than any U.S. city I have ever lived in. - Feb 8, 2014
None. - Aug 7, 2011
Not really, just use common sense. Denmark is exceptionally safe. There was the occasional pick-pocket purse-snatcher, and I heard of nieghbors getting their homes broken into, but overall my family & I felt very safe. - Jul 22, 2011
