Floripa's safety greatly depends on the neighborhood (and the side of the neighborhood). For instance, the commercial center (also a huge residential center and the center of the city itself) is the safest place in the whole city and has police patrolling the streets everyday. I live in this neighborhood my whole and never have been a victim of any crime whatsoever (for real). However, if you go to certain neighborhoods to the north and south of the city, you better keep both eyes open. For example, the beach neighborhood of Ingleses, the left side is purely residential, it isn't rich but it isn't poor either, and is very safe, we have a beach house there and nothing ever happened. We even forgot to close and lock a window once in our house there an nothing was stolen or invaded. The right side of Ingleses, however, is poor and dangerous to live, and it's where the vast majority of the problems and crimes happen. The poorest areas of the city are often the most dangerous ones, but you can easily avoid them. So how safe you'll be greatly depends on which part of the city you live in.

Lived in Florianopolis for five years. Safest place I have ever lived in the world. Brazilians exaggerate the shit out of crime in Floripa.

Despite what locals will say in order to lie, Florianopolis is anything but safe. Just like pretty much all of Brazil, you're a target for criminals, muggers and even murderers who will go as far as to kill or kidnap children because they take great pleasure of it, and cops will not care about your problems, no matter how serious.

Floripa used to be safe but I personally died there.
