Abu Dhabi has been named the safest city in the world for the eighth consecutive year, according to Numbeo's 2024 Mid-Year Crime Index released on Tuesday. 

The Numbeo Crime Index, updated semiannually, considers survey responses regarding perceptions of crime, personal safety during daylight and nighttime, concerns about specific crimes, and the extent of property and violent crimes.

The UAE dominated the list in terms of safety, with its cities securing four out of the top six spots.

Abu Dhabi proudly stands as the safest city in the world, recording an impressively low crime index score of 11.8 and a safety index score of 88.2 - the highest globally.

Ajman snatched the second spot with a crime index of 15.8 and a safety index of 84.2, while Dubai ranked fourth with a crime index of 16.3 and a safety index of 83.7. 

Ras Al-Khaimah also made it to the top ten, landing at the sixth position with a crime index of 17.7 and a safety index of 82.3.

The index uses an inverse scale, where a lower score indicates a safer city.

Cities with a crime level below 20 are considered the safest.

All four UAE cities on the list have scored well below 20, highlighting the country's ongoing commitment to providing security and high quality of life for its residents.
