Barbados Crime

Barbados is a relatively safe place to visit and crime in Barbados is mainly petty theft and street crime. Occasions of violent crime such as rape do happen occasionally so it’s good to be vigilant especially if on the beaches at night. Always keep valuables secure in a hotel safe when possible and take care to always lock hotel room doors and windows. Barbados is much safer than most large cities in the world, but being watchful and taking precautions are the best ways to guarantee a safe and secure holiday. If you are the victim of a crime when in Barbados remember to report this to your nearest embassy as well as local police-especially if you have had your passport stolen or lost. The embassy staff should assist you in finding appropriate medical care in Barbados, contacting family members or friends and explaining how funds could be transferred and how the Barbadian justice system works.
