When I was there visiting relatives, the only thing they said was an issue was theft, muggings, and home invasion. My Aunt's friend's house got broken into while we were at a family reunion.

Only uneducated illiterate that say Indonesia is unsafe. All data say that homicide rate in Indonesia is only 0.4. Rape rate only 0.4. Far safer than in Christian countries in Amerika or Europe where people are robbed and raped everywhere.

The ideas of visitors to a webpage, mmmm

I've been walking the streets of Jakarta for years, not just the shopping areas,but the side roads and gangs westerners don't even know exist, and have only ever met with one person I deemed a potential threat - that turned out to be a man with more 'interesting' Islamic views and a hatred of Americans. Once he found out I wasn't American, all was well.
Years of exploring and photographing such places with nothing more criminal than the odd small shop trying to overcharge me, and then not my enough to make me bother arguing, has left me with very firm evidence Jakarta isn't just a safe city, its people are positively friendly and welcoming.

Indonesia is not the "Mexico of ASEAN".People are over exaggerating, Other ASEAN Countries has higher crime rate than Indonesia!

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).
