It was not so long ago Cyprus was virtually crime free. Stories abound of a carefree life, homes left unlocked day and
night. Home insurance unheard of, thieves were limited to night time creatures rearranging your waste bin seeking
a midnight snack.

This folklore is remembered fondly by ex-pats and Cypriots alike.

For a number of years Cyprus prospered, executive cars became a customary site on Cypriot roads, bespoke cloths shops
and beauty salons opened, a truly amazing transformation from a once mainly farming region. Land owners and farmers cashed in and sold land that had been in their families for generations to developers and in some cases becoming exceptionally wealthy almost overnight. For a number of years there was a demand for property and the building industry boomed. It seemed everyone benefited and was able to earn a good living.

The flourishing economic times have come to an end, jobs are very difficult to find. With no way of making a living burglaries of residential homes and businesses are now almost a daily occurrence, property alarms are becoming commonplace along with beware of the dog signs, light timers and other deterrents such as security window grilles found on properties in other Mediterranean Countries such as Spain to keep homes safe. Neighbourhood Watch groups have been set up to help try and reduce crime.

You will often read on forums and in other media Cyprus has a low crime rate, with regard to serious crime such as murders this is generally true. However, this is one subject that can be difficult to define and is very much dependent on your own personal morals or how you justify a wrong doing.

Working as a pool cleaner, cash in hand without declaring your income to avoid tax, many would say the Government already tax us enough, does that make it right ?. Using a mobile phone while driving ? Pet cat or dog poisoned, a crime ?. A few garden plastic chairs stolen, criminality behaviour ?. Graffiti ?. If you were mugged is that crime ?. Do you consider theft from cars or homes being burgled is a crime ?. Drinking and driving ?. Arson (which is regularly reported in the press) ?. Illegal drugs ?. If your answer is no to these questions then Cyprus does indeed have a low crime rate.

Many forum contributors urge you to “put crime into perspective” perhaps suggesting being a victim of crime in Paphos really is not that bad, no matter how petty or serious ? Easy to say (or post on a forum). Other forum posts suggest crime is worse in the UK and you should consider yourself fortunate - still not very reassuring. However, you need to remember the UK population is approximately 6000 % more than Cyprus !. If say 12 homes are burgled in Peyia then 721 homes would need to be burgled in a similar sized UK Village over the same period for crime to be worse !

In recent years the Cyprus economy, as with many other European Countries, has weakened and for both Cypriots and non-Cypriots unemployment has increased. Finding work is now extremely difficult and some believe this could be the reason why crime has escalated.

Vehicles are especially vulnerable and valuables should be removed or secured away in the boot, doors are locked and windows are closed when away from the vehicle.

Below are true reported accounts, they are included within this website not to scaremonger but to make you fully aware of the type of crime taking place in Paphos and Cyprus so you can decide what security, if any, is needed to protect your home and family.
Put crime into perspective - is being a victim of crime in Paphos really that bad ?
Not so long ago Cyprus was virtually crime free - burglaries are becoming ever more common.
