13 Feb U.S. State Department Issues Another Vital Criminal Activity Caution for the Bahamas
The United States Department of State has actually once again noted the criminal activity danger in the Bahamas as “” important” and alerted U.S. travelers to take precaution while going to the nation.
The caution was provided 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 most current 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 many islands (typically described as the “Household Islands”), where criminal activity is considerably less than in Nassau.
The per capita murder and rape rates for the Bahamas as a whole are dramatically greater than any port city in the United States.
