When investing in property abroad, it important to feel reassured about every aspect of the country in which you are considering your purchase. Learn something about the crime situation in Cape Verde here.
As in any African country, petty thievery and burglary are quite common, but crime rates are relatively low which is reassuring for purchasers of investment property in Cape Verde. Visitors are advised to take normal precautions and avoid large crowds, any political gatherings, and street demonstrations.
Interestingly, the crime rate in the city of Praia in July was considerably lower than that registered in the same month last year, according to a source from the Ministry of Internal Administration. Crimes against goods and property went down by 42% in comparison to July 2005, while crimes against people were down by 22%. This is due to a recent restructuring of the police force in Cape Verde and improvements to police communication equipment.
In the event of an emergency, contact the local police authorities by dialing 132.
