Croatia is one of the safest countries in Europe, according to recent statistical data. Croatia’s Minister of Internal Affairs Ranko Ostojic reiterated that statement when he spoke during the opening of the International Adriatic City Security Conference dedicated to urban safety on Thursday.
“In 2012, there were 72,171 criminal offences reported in Croatia, which is a reduction of 4.6% compared to 2011”, said Ostojic, adding that Croatian cities were safe for its citizens and visiting tourists alike.
The Minister said that Croatian police were planning new crime fighting methods, particularly in the area of white-collar crime, and he was confident that Croatia would meet all requirements to enter the Schengen regime by 2015.
This year’s 2-day conference, which is held in Opatija, will also feature a Civil-crisis management in cities – critical infrastructure protection module.
