No homeless people in streets, no drugs, no private owned guns = practically zero violent crimes. The police here don't even carry guns as a result. Lived here for 5 years, never experienced, witnessed, or even heard of any crimes, for me as well as for all the people I know. Yet Beijing received lower safety scores than some US cities, what a joke.
Not in anyway true for any aspect on Mar 06, 2022:

Lived here for 4 years. Never witnessed or even heard a friend witness a crime. Scams are everywhere though, especially if you're a foreigners Be afraid of being ripped off, but have no worries about personal safety. Violence is almost non-existent in this city.

Just becareful about leaving things around. Non-violent theft is still a bit of a problem in Beijing.

Brisbane has redneck slobs, Muslims, corrupt fat racist Queensland Police and traffic. Now you know why I romance the 50's. Where are the family values?! Disgusting!!!

The rates above are very inaccurate and misleading, Beijing and other cities in China would considered to be one of the most safe places compared to majority of other major cities in the world. You will almost never feel unsafe to walk alone during both day and night times, sometime even at midnight. I have been living in Beijing and different cities in China for more than 10 years and also lived in Australian cities for a few year as well as travel to US and UK cities. Non of those so called most liveable cities made me feel safe to walk alone after hours.
