Spain is statistically one of the European countries with the lowest Crime Rate with around 45 crimes per 1,000 people. However, drug-trafficking is at large with around half of all cocaine found by European law enforcement agencies being found by Spanish police forces, as well as having the highest number of cocaine users in Europe.

Street crime against tourists is very low, this includes pick-pocking, mugging, assault and sexual assault. These crimes, when very occasionally committed, are almost always in major tourist areas.
