13 Feb U.S. State Department Issues Another Crucial Criminal Activity Caution for the Bahamas
The United States Department of State has actually once again noted the criminal activity risk in the Bahamas as “” vital” and alerted U.S. travelers to take precaution while checking out the nation.
The caution was released by the U.S. Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) which simply released the theBahamas 2018 Crime & Safety Report
Like other U.S. cautions about the Bahamas, this newest caution mainly includes Nassau (New Providence), not the “” external islands” “not often visited by cruise liner. The OSAC approximates that there are roughly 370,000 individuals residing in the Bahamas, with around 70% (around 250,000-260,000) of the population living in crime-filled New Providence. Another another 15% (55,000) survive on Grand Bahama. The remainder of the population is distributed over various islands (frequently described as the “Household Islands”), where criminal activity is significantly less than in Nassau.
The per capita murder and rape rates for the Bahamas as a whole are significantly greater than any port city in the United States.
