Calgary isn’t safe anymore even though it may seem that way. But Calgary needs to come up with a new contending way to provide protection to every resident because theirs a new huge series of crimes on our hands towards home owners by theifs with a new form of break and entering called key bumping. I personally fell victim so that’s how I know about this and I live in seton witch is a new bright and beautiful area newly established along Calgaries Deep South Landscapes

Calgary is very safe it is rare you will see crime the only thing that worries me about calgary is getting items from my car stolen and people doing drugs

Take normal precautions. If you go out, lock your doors, lock your car doors, be aware of your surroundings. Most crimes seem related to drug use (normal for a large city with a fairly young population and probably the cause of most car thefts and stolen property). Don't be a drunken fool or take drugs, and you'll probably be fine. There's been a spike in crime in C-train stations lately, which do need more night time monitoring, and probably related to drugs. Again, be aware of your surroundings just like you would be anywhere! Random attacks are very rare.

"being insulted" isn't a crime, and should not be included here.

Calgary is a very safe. Violent crime is very uncommon. But anything not dynabolted to concrete will be immediately stolen and/or trashed. Vehicles getting broken into is quite a problem, so hide those valuables.
