A robust presence of local officials is one of the primary reasons for the region’s safety.

Additionally, burglary and street theft rates have decreased during the last four years. The burglary rate has dropped by a remarkable 63%. Theft from the street, which encompasses everything from pickpocketing to armed robbery, has been reduced by 52%.
There have been several newsworthy incidents involving Los Cabos law enforcement in recent months. And unlike other regions of Mexico, Los Cabos often receives excellent comments. The state administration and police have made significant gains in combating crime and improving their public image.
There are also definite rumors of more enhancements in 2023, including the installation of 300 new security cameras in the most popular tourist areas of Los Cabos and an additional 25,000 street lights to enhance night-time security.
