Swiss society is becoming more violent

The latest figures provided by police statistics in Switzerland have caused great concern in society. They show an increase in the number of crimes in the country over the past year. This worrying trend is not only reflected in an increase in serious crimes such as violence and theft, but also in a significant rise in digital crimes.

Criminologist Dirk Bayer, analyzing the situation, draws attention to the need for urgent action on the part of the authorities and society as a whole. According to him, the increase in the number of crimes in the country has grown by 14% compared to the previous period, which raises serious questions about the state of security in society and the effectiveness of existing preventive measures.

Of particular concern is the increase in serious crimes such as violence and theft to levels seen previously. This may indicate a change in social dynamics and an increase in aggression in society. In addition, there has been a significant increase in digital crime, indicating the need to strengthen measures to combat cybercrime.

The expert notes that the coronavirus pandemic has also had an impact. It caused social and economic changes that played a role in the increase in crime. For example, some groups have faced financial difficulties due to job loss or a worsening economic situation, which has become a risk factor for crime.

Switzerland attracts many tourists from abroad, which unfortunately can lead to an increase in criminal activity. There is an abundance of wealth in the country and sometimes people are not careful enough, not locking their cars or leaving apartment doors unlocked.

Therefore, it is necessary to be more careful and take precautions to avoid becoming victims of crime. Switzerland is definitely a safe country and the residents value their safety. Nevertheless, it sometimes lacks security and, in a sense, can encourage crime.

In addition, the rise in thefts and crimes among refugees is a major concern, having increased by more than 50% since last year. Experts have expressed fears about the upward trend in crime among this population and have called for additional protection measures.

In light of these circumstances, criminologist Dirk Bayer emphasizes the need for a comprehensive approach to the crime problem. He calls for joint action by the authorities, police and society to effectively counter crime and ensure the safety of all citizens of the country.
