In Spain there is approximately half the population of the UK living in twice the land mass so space is of the essence, whether this as a bearing on the lower crime figures  is anyone's guess but it is a fact that Spain has probably the lowest crime rate in Europe however mainly petty crime does exist in the built up areas of cities and to a lesser degree in the popular tourist areas, although following  local police clamp downs on reducing tourist crime ,these figures are relatively low but one should be aware such crime does exist.

One only needs to ask any ex pat their views on Spanish Crime and they will probably say 'what Crime' although there is little doubt that it is there but not to the extent witnessed in the UK, Most major incidents sadly are usually at the hands of  foreigners either dealing in Drugs which sadly does exist in Spain (as it does in most countries around the world ) or youth crime and in some cases, from some extreme political group mainly aimed at the Government.
