‘Theft or violence can occur ‘in the nick of crime’ and no one is immune,’ says Joe Auer of Security Baron. ‘Although it is difficult to predict when crime will occur, it is vital to ensure the area you are visiting or moving to is secure and not infamous for any sort of criminal behaviour. You can use safety scores and rankings to check!’
