Safety & Security
The main responsible safety bodies in Albania are the local police which are assisted by the international police. The reliability of electricity, telecommunications and the water systems has improved to a great extent compared to past years. The Albanian Police Service normally performs regular police functions and duties and is constantly assisted in such tasks by professional international officers.
Nearly all of the cities in Albania are considered safe as they possess fairly low rates of crime and violence.
The number to be dialed in cases of any emergency requiring the ambulance, police, or fire services is 92 for land lines and 211 for mobile telephones. In cases of non-emergencies, any local police stations may be contacted.
