I don’t get the first comment down there. I’m part of the moroccan Jewish community but I lived most of my life between Paris and Brighton, UK. Now, I settled down in Casablanca and locals news are no different from those in the UK. In Casablanca, murders and violent crimes are rare and occurs generally within the same social circle ( divorce affairs or employers affairs) . I’ve never read or experienced any kind of violence in the city. Casablanca is probably safer than París but nowhere as safe as a little town like Brighton.
However, by using normal common sense, you can avoid all troubles in the city.
The city has got a very vibrant nightlife ( corniche ) and many petty crime happens around nigh-clubs as pickpocket would take advantage of drunk people and snap theirs belongings . Although, I’ve never seen a city of that size having such a huge night life during the week.
The culture is very Arab oriented so human interactions are everywhere. Weather is a pushy seller or someone asking directions.

Casablanca una città pericolosa.
Non cè niente da fare, è una città che ha regalato al mondo delle ultras fantastiche ma i crimini sono all'ordine del giorno, le persone che si fanno di Rivotril, polizia corrotta e non si può girare con un telefono in mano

I live in Casablanca. It is not as described by some, as terribly unsafe and dangerous.
Like any big city one must take care, but I walk often and use public transportation (tram, taxi, train) and only ever encounter normal people going about their everyday life. It's also very common for young people to give up their seats to the elderly.
Another thing I've seen regularly is free water. Cafés will have large water jugs for use by passersby.

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.
