Crime situation in China

  According to governmental statistics, the number of crimes committed in China has decreased over the past years, amounting to 5.48 million cases in 2017, the lowest number in the last ten years. However, the number of arrests of criminal suspects in China reached a high in 2017 with over one million arrests. Theft, fraud and assault were the top three types of crimes in China.

City safety in China

  Generally speaking, the criminal rate is associated with population density. In regions with higher population densities, there are also more theft and robbery crimes committed. Even though some Chinese cities have the highest population densities in the world, the crime rate of these regions are still low when compared to global rates. Cities in China are also widely covered with closed-circuit television cameras, which have contributed positively to the reduction of crimes and as well as to the crime detection rate.
