There are car break-ins but that is about it. Violent crime is rarely heard of. - Jan 2021

Petty crime and crimes of opportunity, but generally quite safe. - Aug 2014

There isn't a lot of high level crime, but petty crime is fairly common. Thieves will break your car window to get things left out such as bags and electronics. If you're a woman, there can be quite a lot of harassment (whistling, calling out, honking, stalking, inappropriate suggestions and sometimes even being propositioned) particularly when you're alone on foot. There are also roaming packs of stray/feral dogs that have attacked or chased people aggressively. - Nov 2013

None. Excellent. - Dec 2008

None really - It's really quite safe and boring here. - Jan 2008
