For Those who are coming from Worse and High Crime Country may feels Jakarta is relatively Safe. For Those who are coming from Developed Country may feels Jakarta is very High Crime and Dangerous.

I am as the Citizen of This Country feels that this country are not quite safe, especially if you go everywhere with Public Transportation (Unless Busway), you may see people Slums People (Sometimes They Are Alone or Sometimes They are In Group) try to Rob you or Threaten you if you are Rich or You Wearing Good Dress. And if you (Especially Woman) wearing Skirts sometimes it can be possible for you to being Raped. It's more common in Indonesia especially jakarta. Indonesia is kinda like "MEXICO FROM ASEAN"

I'm as citizens have a plan to Move to Another Country that more Safe than Indonesia.

They said don't judge people by its cover. Please do judge people when you in Indonesia. If the guy look like monkey that keep staaring you, chances are you going to be robbed very high. The women are okay. The men sucks. For people who wear skirts or tights please use loose jeans, they might put their dck in between your thighs. Trust me. Guy who look like rapist here are actually rapist.

For those who said Indonesia is safe country. You all are pretty dumb and blind! Do you know how many people's home got bribed and how many women here are raped. Even my neighbour's house got robbed, although their house is totally near with the security post. Terrorism and kidnapping is also very high in this country but not all of them gets to be heard by the public since all the policemen here are easily bribed with money! For foreigners out there who wished to live here, there is only 1 rule you need to listen, which is: 'YOU HAVE TO BE RICH IN ORDER TO BE RESPECTED BY THE CITIZENS IN THIS COUNTRY.' That's all I'm saying. I'm Indonesian but I have to admit I hate this country because all the people here has a lack of professionalism (also referring to the police).

It's a safe city. I luv Indonesia very much. Have been in and out of this country for the past 40 years? Alhamdulillah!

Don't visit this country. They are the Mexico version of Asia. Chances of you being raped if you know any Indonesian (when you working) is 80%. Last time a Indonesian friend of mine being raped and killed. I moved out from Indonesia after the police warned me that I might be the next target.

In the city even during the daylight there chances of you being threaten and snatched your purses.

I will never going back to this country anymore. Murderers and Rapis haven.

Chance to get mugged at night in North, West and East Jakarta is 8 in 10.
Jakarta almost always floods when raining.

I have lived in Jakarta for four years. I am not some safety expert so I am just sharing my own experience. Like any big city, you just need to know the few places where NOT to go. Avoid train stations, some "shady" areas like Blok M at night and you will be fine day or night. I have never felt threatened or in danger for my personal safety. The majority of Indonesians are very decent, humble and polite. However, like in any country in the world you will occasionally hear about or experience sad stories like false accusations, major corruption, dishonest domestic employees, theft, scamming or people wanting to be your friend because of your money. Asking for a bribe to get something done is quite common. So problems do exist, but safety is not worse than in other "developed" countries. I am leaving because I can no longer stand the unbearable traffic, noise + air pollution.

#Anonymous on Mar 20, 2015 :
i'm living in tanjung priok north jakarta, the real problem was traffic, and public transportation, if it solve by more mass rappit transportation, and more lightening in the street, it will be safer
#Anonymous on Jan 05, 2015 :
I've been lived in jakarta for 22 years
However, i was attacked by someone in Pondok Indah and stole my celular phone. It happened 7 years ago.
Overall, Jakarta is safe if you're not stupid
