Results from the Expat Survey on Crime in Malaysia
Published: Tuesday, 20 May 2014
The Expat Group recently conducted a survey to gather resident expats' views on and experiences with crime in Malaysia. We present here the results and analysis of the survey.
There has been a lot written in the newspapers about the rising crime rate in Malaysia, which does not align with reports from the police showing a decline. We decided to try and obtain resident expats’ perspective on this issue. Our survey results indicated that expats generally feel the situation is getting worse, not better.
