Bali police calculate the quantity of criminal cases is on the decline in Bali, counting only 5,280 cases through the end of November 2011, as compared to 5,867 cases for all of 2010.

But, while the quantity of crime may be on the decline, the quality of criminal acts is showing the reverse trend. In 2011, larceny cases with elements of violence increased 40%. In 2011 police recorded 186 cases of violent theft .

The Provincial Chief of Police for Bali, General Totoy Herawan Indra, said: “Yes, indeed in terms of quantity the number of criminal cases has declined, but the quality of crime has become more brazen. The criminals who formerly only snatched purses or wallets, now bring physical violence into play.” As a result, General Totoy recommends that the public be cautious.

Meanwhile, a separate repost in The Jakarta Globe quoted General Totoy as saying the number of crimes committed by foreign visitors is also on the increase with 88 such cases recorded in 2011 as compared to 82 in 2010.

Most crimes committed by foreigners are narcotics-related with 23 drug-related arrests in 2011, lower than the 30 arrests made for drug offenses among foreigners in 2010.

In 2011, a total of 41 foreigners died in Bali, mostly due to illness or suicide.

General Totoy also says that Bali needs more police officers, claiming the 12,000-man police force was inadequate to address the needs of Bal'si large population and huge number of tourist visitors.
