Portugal: Crime

Portugal Crime

There is a relatively low rate of violent crime in Portugal, however, as in most tourist destinations, you will find thieves and pickpockets. As always it is worth taking the usual necessary precautions of not carrying around large amounts of cash with you and avoiding quiet areas after dark. If you are a victim of crime in Portugal you should report it to the local police station. The national emergency number, as in the rest of Europe, is 112.
