UAE listed in top 10 safest countries in the world
The country scored 92 in Gallup’s 2020 Global Law and Order report ]
Residents in the UAE feel safe, secure and have confidence in the police, according to a new poll.
Gallup’s 2020 Global Law and Order report, the UAE featured in a list of top 10 countries with the highest law and order index scores.
The index is a composite score based on people's confidence in the local police, their feelings of personal safety, and incidents of theft, assault or mugging in the past year. The higher the score, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling secure.
The index score for the UAE in 2019 was 92, which made it one of the safest countries in the world. While Singapore, as always, topped the list with a score of 97, Afghanistan scored a low of 43 ranking alone as the lowest in the world for the second consecutive year.
The US fared better compared to last year with a law and order score of 85.
The numbers also indicate that in most economically developed countries with a strong rule of law, a majority of the residents said they felt safe walking alone at night where they lived. UAE scored 92%, Kuwait 90% and Saudi Arabia 88%. This response was nearly universal in Singapore, at 97%, and topped 80% in many Western European countries.
The poll revealed that about seven in 10 people worldwide said, in 2019, they felt safe walking alone at night in their residential area (69 per cent) – unchanged from the previous year. Except for Afghanistan, the countries in which residents were least likely to say they felt safe walking alone at night are countries in Latin America, Caribbeans and sub-Sahara African regions.
