The murder in San Pedro last week, followed so shortly after by another Tuesday night – both violent – may give the impression that La Isla Bonita is becoming a dangerous place. After all, this is Mother Nature’s best kept secret, where hundreds of thousands of tourists flock annually to experience a bit of paradise. But is that paradise becoming tainted by crime? Deputy Coastal Executive Officer Henry Jemott says that’s not so, and the statistics don’t lie.

Insp. Henry Jemott, Deputy Coastal Executive Officer

“We closed last year with a 29% decrease in crime overall so I differ with that. Everybody knows and you can go on the street and ask San Pedro people. They feel much safer. Even the tourists feel much safer because they have seen a large decrease which is a 29% decrease. My thing is that San Pedro, just like anywhere else in the world, will have crime. But what you need to know is that the crime is not against the tourists. Some of it is the natives causing problems among themselves and we have seen that for a while. It’s different families on the island who are causing problems.”

Wasn't the young female active duty United States Coastguard member stabbed while walking on the beach a couple of months ago a tourist?
