I have lived in Jakarta for four years. I am not some safety expert so I am just sharing my own experience. Like any big city, you just need to know the few places where NOT to go. Avoid train stations, some "shady" areas like Blok M at night and you will be fine day or night. I have never felt threatened or in danger for my personal safety. The majority of Indonesians are very decent, humble and polite. However, like in any country in the world you will occasionally hear about or experience sad stories like false accusations, major corruption, dishonest domestic employees, theft, scamming or people wanting to be your friend because of your money. Asking for a bribe to get something done is quite common. So problems do exist, but safety is not worse than in other "developed" countries. I am leaving because I can no longer stand the unbearable traffic, noise + air pollution.

i'm living in tanjung priok north jakarta, the real problem was traffic, and public transportation, if it solve by more mass rappit transportation, and more lightening in the street, it will be safer
