Safety, Security, Crime & Emergency Numbers

The country’s biggest issues are in Gang-related Activity, Human Trafficking, Terrorism and Corruption.

Human Trafficking is incredibly high with crimes related to this activity rated as the third highest in the world. The crime is punishable by law and typically sees penalties between 3 and 15 years in prison. The majority of victims are from other surrounding South American countries including Bolivia, Paraguay, the Dominican Republic, Peru, Colombia and Uruguay as well as Argentina itself.

Terrorism and Gang-related Activity often go hand in hand and are the result of the fallout after the various oppressive military regimes in the 70s and 80s, these are often brought about by the remnants of activist groups turned guerrilla militia forces.

The country’s corrupt roots lie, again, back in the days of the oppressive military regimes, and sadly have not changed all that much. To this day there is corruption involved with government forces through money laundering, ties with the drug cartels and police brutality and bribery.
