HK is a very very safe city despite the issue with police. Stuck at political problem.

It's still very safe, just U can't say anything bad about China or police.

And mostly of of time (like >90%) U don't have to worry about the crime about robbery, theft, sexual threats, etc. Nothing to worry about going at night.U can go anywhere u want without any hesitation.

HK was safe before 2019. Now it is safe again.

No more teargas and protests - people got beaten up into obedience

It's very safe and harmonic now and there is nothing nice about it

People are simply not smiling at each other anymore and you can never know when you are the next person to be arrested, or at least randomly checked by police. If you're 20-something male, police can just randomly tell you to show your smartphones gallery and browsing history - they don't even waste time on decrypting https etc

Used to be very safe.

Not anymore. Police state now.
Not even Hong Kong anymore.

Hardly can it be called a safe city.
Police brutality.
Ruthless pragmatic governance against majority public will.
Unlimited tear gas supply.
Many false false imprisonments are happening each day.

It is not safe because you may be hit by tear gas anytime. People can be attacked by police or arrested without reasons. Corruption is getting higher.

Hong Kong Police force made this city worser in safety

Corruption should be high
the average live in 2 bedroom apartments
and the poor live in tiny cage homes (size of a bathroom)
the filthy rich live in penthouses
