People from Volcán and Cerro Punta, in Chiriquí, are very sensitive and friendly to visitors or expats. They all take good care and watch out for them, in any way they can, including safety and general needs. They guide expats on the things they should avoid to make their area a safer place to live. The Security Ministry is making great efforts to offer all residents a good quality and safe day-to-day living. I don´t think there are statistics for crime in the area, but local residents are the best to describe this issue. Being such a beautiful and peaceful place brings any criminal event into a minimal expression.
