most dangerous countries

If you were given the opportunity to travel anywhere on this planet, which country do you think you would not feel safe going to? Unfortunately, the world is a dangerous place and foreign countries with completely different cultures than yours are usually not the most welcoming and protective countries for tourists. If you never took the time to do a serious analysis of this topic, but you would like to know which are the most dangerous countries you should steer clear from.

Global Peace Index Report Data

The Institute for Economics and Peace compiles the Global Peace Index report on a yearly basis. This is a unique report in the sense that it commensurates the degree of danger associated with 163 countries worldwide, or the equivalent of 99 percent of the world population.

It discerns between safe and unsafe nations relying on almost two dozens factors. Among these factors, we can mention elements like property crimes, homicides and internal conflicts. Each nation is given a score – the lower, the better. The 2018 report rated Syria as the most dangerous country in the world, with 3.6 points, an identical ranking to the one from a year before. Syria is followed by Afghanistan, South Sudan, Iraq, Yemen, and Russia, with Turkey and North Korea also part of the same ranking of dangerous nations.

The Most Dangerous Countries By Burglary Rate

most dangerous countriesNow switching on to the most dangerous countries by burglary rate, we should start by first defining what the term “burglary” means. Shortly put, a burglary is an act of accessing part of a building or a terrain without having any authorization for it. Burglaries are usually done with the help of force and the main reason behind them is to steal something. House and apartment theft, commercial space breaking and entering and the use of false bump keys are all examples of burglaries. The term, however, does not refer to a car, parking meter, vending machine theft, and other similar containers.

Now that we have defined what is considered a burglary, we can proceed to inform you what are the most dangerous countries in the world by burglary rate per 100, 000 population. The leading nation here is Chile with close to 1,200 reported burglaries per 100,000 people, followed by Denmark, Australia, Sweden, and Austria in random order.

Chile has lots of “cerrajerias” where you can copy regular keys (called “llaves”) in the country. They also have plenty of normal locksmith shops where it is possible to make a spare key with as little as 400-500 pesos per key or the equivalent of around 20 American Dollars. It is also possible to buy key covers and chains for small prices and have a key copied in a few minutes without having to remove the key from the chain. Lockouts are also handled fast and smoothly by the locksmiths in Chile. And, you can even find small "cerrajerias" stands near metros, inside city malls and at busy street corners with lost of foot traffic. Keeping your home safe here should therefore not be a big problem given the big number of lock technicians here. However, the number of home and commercial burglaries continues to be disturbingly large in the country, placing Chile on top of the list of countries by burglary rate. If you are getting ready to move here, make sure you take some precautionary measures to beef up security on your home.

Australia is another country with lots of expert locksmiths trained and skilled at installing, fixing, rekeying and replacing locks and keys and everything in between. Similarly to the American system, Aussie locksmiths who wish to become trade qualified locksmiths must complete an apprenticeship program through TAFE. Australians benefit from advanced technologies when completing their apprenticeships. This gives them a clear advantage in front of older locksmiths who refuse to embrace the changes and wish to stick to fixing brass locks and keys for the rest of their careers. Smart and electronic locks, access control systems, vault and safe locks with electronic keypads, advanced home alarm systems - these are all realities of our times and locksmiths must keep up with the trends if they wish to stay relevant and continue to help the population.

The keys to my office went missing, just disappeared last night. I was so frustrated, besides for being embarrassed in front of my employees, I also didn’t want to lose money due to the delay. I called for a locksmith and Justin came over straight away, he suggested re-keying the lock, in case my keys were stolen, I thought this was a great idea, and that’s what we did, he then made new keys for me on the spot.
