The 2018 Global Law and Order report compiled by consultancy Gallup found that Singapore, Indonesia are among the safest countries in the world, ahead of many developed countries in East Asia and Europe. 

The 2018 Global Law and Order survey asked 148,000 people around the world to evaluate how safe they feel in their respective countries, where participants were asked whether they felt safe walking alone at night, had confidence in the police, had property stolen from them or their family and whether they had been mugged in the last 12 months.

More than two-thirds of people worldwide have confidence in their police forces and feel safe walking alone at night.

Thirteen percent had property stolen from them or a family member in the past year, while 5 percent experienced assault or robbery.
