Safety, Security, Crime & Emergency Numbers

Turkey’s biggest issues with Crime are those through honour killing (murdering due to what the murderer believes to be a just cause) and gang activity. Within the last ten years, over 24 thousand people have been arrested by Turkish Police, of these, over 8600 were due to involvement in gangs.

Turkey’s other problem is with torture instated by law enforcement officials on prisoners and arrestees. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the European Committee for the Prevention in Torture has condemned these actions but has stated that they believe that as of recent, procedures have been set in place to prevent these incidents from happening.
