Lhasa, Shanghai rated safest

(China Tibet Online)

10:21, December 21, 2012

Nearly 40 percent of more than 25,000 surveyed urban residents from 38 Chinese cities said they are afraid to go out at night, according to a blue book on public services in 2012 released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Thursday.

Almost 39 percent of those surveyed said they worry about the security of their home property when leaving home for long periods.

Residents of Lhasa, capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, rated their safety and public security the highest. Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province, got the lowest marks for safety from its residents.

Shanghai, Xiamen, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Changchun, Chongqing, Tianjin and Dalian along with Lhasa were the top 10 safest cities. Beijing was in 14th place.

The blue book said generally, residents in coastal cities in East China and municipalities feel much safer than those in other regions of the country.

It also suggests a dynamic monitoring and assessment system of security be established in cities, in combination with a large-scale survey of residents to better understand their concerns.

Meanwhile, new technology and facilities should also be used to better ensure public safety.
