Unmasking The 'Lowest Crime Rate' Societies : In Pursuit of a Model to Emulate

There are still places in the world whereby one could go to sleep, leave a $1000 envelope or valuable trinkets on the sitting room center table and find it on the next day...because there was no burglary. Also, there are societies whereby your broken down car parked by the street sides does not get vandalized, let alone get stolen.

Certainly, such societies, we wish to emulate. For instance, statistics place Abu Dhabi and Dubai of the UAE as one of the ‘close to’ zero tolerance crime cities in the world. What is known so far includes the fact that lower crime rates are grossly linked to chunks of resources in terms of fiscal budget, infrastructure, human resources and other items in the paraphernalia. Preliminary studies show societies that once thrived in community policing simultaneously get an increasing rate of crime once the budget shrinks.

Travel Learn participants would like to know if it is the morality, religion, good policing, favorable economy etc. Are the police officers in these few societies impermeable to bribery and corruption, a very poignant factor? Is it so, would it be chiefly due to getting adequately paid? These and other factors are simply surveyed using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
