Honestly, Casablanca is a very dangerous city. It's better to be avoided at all costs.
Not only tourists are at a risk to be harmed in any way but so are locals as well.
Lot of drugs dealers, angry people, corrupted police. Don't rely on police to do anything.
If you think you should visit it, try to be only in Ain Diab beach which is a little bit secure. The rest of downtown is horrible and congested with traffic and people.
Try to be careful from those who ride scooters and motorcycles, they can steal your belongings and run so quick. The buses are the last transportation you will be thinking to take. Completely crowded and horrible.
In general, try to avoid it as it's not safe neither in day nor evening time.

Oliver. Are you kidding? Casablanca is a huge city .there are some petty crimes such as theft and mugging but it is not as serious as you ve said.I have been living in a popular area for more than 10 years and it s reputed to be dangerous and I signalled one incident related to my family:my son was robbed of his phone.ofcourse we hope for more security but now it s liveable.

crimes get worse in recent years worldwide especially in big cities
in UK London 17 teenagers been stabbed & murdered 2 gun shoot killed a day
Knife crimes increased daramatically compare it to last decades
in morocco its different who committed crime those left behind no education & no career and most of them comes from villages and small cities
what's makes these criminals using KARKOUBI high drug tablet come from Spain companies through Algeria with high doze and using motorbikes bug kitchen knife & luck of police presence and quick response of course the criminals will rob and run and will not get caught up as there are no CCTV
But recently the Moroccan police are getting to the bottom of it by targeting those KARKOUBI dealers
At least there are not gun shoot crimes which bit save like but to alone at night its risky in any where

Dude i witnessed beheading in the street with my own eye! is this Casablanca or Iraq!! shame on anyone who says these stats are exaggerated. just because it didn't happen to you (yet) doesn't mean it never occurred. there are people in distress who are trying to make their voice heard. don't get in their way. BTW!! that Royal grace where the king release every now and then 1000 criminals to society so they can kill us but still scream "long live the king" when he's venturing in this or that city is a f**ing scam. people with murder case can benefit from it because bribery baby. don't tell me this is not a fucking scam.

Morocco is one of most dangerous countries.Car theft rate is one of the highest among african towns.Bag snatching ,card snatching and women rapes are a national sport.

@Karin are you serious? maaaaaaan!! ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?? "Just don't tempt the devil and walk in the streets alone" so we are supposed to be in a constant state of war

@Nezha Sebti the likes of yours who see exhibiting jewelry as an act of provocation is what is wrong with this society! shame on you. KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. you're a disgrace to your sisters and brothers of your community

@Hind therefore and according to your own personal experience it's all great. i see (facepalm) just because it didn't happen to you it must have never happened

@Abdel "there areas you shouldn't venture into, but overall I would say it is the safest African country"

don't you see the contradiction in what you just wrote
#Anon commentator on Mar 18, 2016 :
Wow morocco had a high crime rate this year just that moment i see a dangerous fighting with rock and my classmate now is got a break at the mouth and yesterday i saw a blooy and gory fighting with broken wine bottles and as a result the both has been covered with red blood and before yesterday a pedofile rape a little 9 year old girl and even i saw a motherfucking bloody fight as hell with a 17 inch and the result a dead-like men with a emergency statut .... god bless us and make us safe from all that accident and robbery
#karin on Feb 29, 2016 :
I live in Casablanca since 1978 I feel much safer here in Casablanca than in the metro of Lyon and many many other places in the world
This is just nonsens. There is probably less crime here than in most european cities.

Justlike any where in the world do not tempt the devil and walk in the streets alone at midnight ,or do not go to places you do not belong also like any where in!the world !!
#Karin on Feb 29, 2016 :
I live in Casablanca since 1978 and I feel much safer here than in any metro in F
#Nezha Sebti on Feb 28, 2016 :
Nonsense! Casablanca, as any big city in the world has her bright and datk sides. I myself don't feel safeless in its streets, but I do nothing to provoque any tentation (exhibitibg jewelry or expensive cell phone...) as I would do it anywhere else!
#Hind on Feb 27, 2016 :
I find these statistics to be very exaggerated, I was born in Casablanca, Derb Sultan, in a very popular neighbourhood and I have never been worried, day or night. Safety in here is like any location in the world, you find the good and the bad, I personally feel safer in Casablanca than a lot of other places.
#Abdel on Feb 27, 2016 :
These statistics are nonsense! They are not based on real data, it is based on people's perception!
Someone living in South Central LA has a different way for crime and safety than someone living in Beverly Hills! Yet it's basically the city and the same country!
Morocco is the same, there areas you shouldn't venture into, but overall I would say it is the safest African country!
