Safety:

 

Geneva is one of the safest European cities to visit. Violent crime is unheard of (1.99 crimes out of a 100,000 were of a violent nature, according to a 2003 survey).


However, petty theft in the city is common, especially in and around the city's railway stations, so it's advisable to keep an eye on your personal belongings when out in public.


If in case you do fall victim to any such activity, it is better to report it to the police, as they would be willing to lend any kind of help that you need.

 

Emergency number for contacting the police: 117


Contact number for Cornavin Police Station: +41 (0)22 388 61 00
