Statistics from the last 5 years show the city centre has by far the most crimes reported under every category compared to other areas of Aberdeen such as Hanover, Woodside, and Bucksburn.

According to the figures, there have been 4,152 "miscellaneous offences" in the city centre compared to 495 offences reported in Middlefield. 

Although, in 2017, Aberdeen had the second lowest crime rate in the UK and these recent figures are still low compared to the figures shown in Glasgow. The largest number of crimes recorded were in Glasgow City, which includes 11% of Scotland's population and accounted for 18% (43,903 crimes) of all recorded crime in Scotland. 

Ryan Dow, Media student said, “I do feel safe in Aberdeen, Aberdeen is fairly busy and full of friendly people so I don’t think there is too much to worry about in terms of crime”.
