Not accurate at all!!
Mecca is the safest place I’ve ever visited, I can walk alone at midnight. Also police is everywhere, I’ve never faced threats or thifts of any kind.

Mecca is probably one of the safest cities in the world.I visited mecca a lot.Your car will never get stolen.You will never get cursed at.There is completely no corruption overthere because it is a holy city.The only problem overthere is that your mini stuff (mobiles,wallets,money) can get stolen when you are in crowded places.While in the highway to mecca you may also see drug busts.

I find it extremely difficult to believe the statistics submitted on Mecca crime rates. It belies all other current data elsewhere on the internet (CIA Factbook, Areavibes, Travel advisor etc).
No doubt Numbeo check does what I have done - check for validity of data.
