(9/1/2013)

The Jakarta Post reports the welcome news that the Island of Bali is, statistically speaking, one of the relatively safer places to visit and live in Indonesia. 

 
In a ranking of areas with the highest crime rates, Bali sits far down the list at #21.
 
According to a police spokesman: “The rank was based on reports submitted by 31 regional police forces in Indonesia, with the area ranked first experiencing the highest crime rate. This list was announced during a recent meeting of regional police commanders in Jakarta.” 
 
A total 5,275 criminal cases were recorded in Bali between January and July 2013. From that total, police claim 3,663 crimes were solved by police. Grand larceny was the most prevalent form of crime totaling 363 cases. The next most prevalent form of crime was a total 206 narcotics violations.
 
The spokesman continued, “Most of the criminal actions occurred in Denpasar and Badung, followed by Buleleng regency in the north.” 
 
Bandung and Denpasar are the most populous areas of Bali.
 
Despite Bali’s relatively low crime rates, police acknowledged the need to defend the Island’s reputation as an international tourism destination by ensuring the safety of both residents and visitors.
 
Note was also made by police of Bali’s past attraction as a target for international terrorism, with the Island being a victim to vicious bombing attacks in 2002 and 2005.
 
Bali’s growing popularity as a destination for international conferences and political summits has placed police on guard to provide high-levels of security for visiting top-level delegations. 
 
Bali will host the Miss World Contest in September 2013 and the APEC Ministerial Meeting in early October 2013. The Miss World Contest will see contestants from 142 countries compete while the APEC Summit will welcome no less than 14 heads-of-state from amongst 21 national delegations expected to flock to Bali among 20,000 delegates.
 
Later in the year, the Bali Democracy Forum comes to Nusa Dua in November and a World Trade Organization Meeting with 30,000 delegates December 1-7, 2013.
 
Police are mounting massive security operations in support of each of these international events.
