The crime rate here is high, but most incidents are crimes of opportunity such as pick-pocketing, assault, robbery and fraud. Most violent crimes are gang-related and don’t target foreigners, and the majority of crime occurs in isolated areas. On Tobago, there is a high incidence of petty theft and hustling of tourists, and thefts of large sums of cash and passports taken from hotel rooms. Police response is slow, especially at night, and especially away from major cities.
