The Crime Prevention Website

The World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) is what is says: a league table of internal security and police performance around the world. 

According to their website the aims of the WISPI are to:

  • Measure security provider performance across the four domains of internal security: capacity, process, legitimacy and outcomes
  • To see how these domains relate to each other; to track trends in these domains over time and to inform the work of security providing agencies, researchers, and practitioners in the field of peace and conflict studies, criminology, and police studies

So where does the United Kingdom come in the table? Twentieth out of 127, so not bad!

Although fifteen of the top twenty are European Countries, top place goes to Singapore. The top twenty also includes Australia (6th), New Zealand (12th), Japan (15th) and Canada (17th)

The USA comes in at 33rd and some other notable positions are; France (22nd), Cyprus (30th), Israel (39th), Greece (48th), Turkey (60th), Jamaica (65th), China (64th), Thailand (69th), Tunisia (72nd), Russia (82nd), India (104th), Pakistan (123rd) and last place goes to Nigeria.
