Indonesia Crime Stats

Background:

Like many chiefly Islamic Asian nations, crime is something that is taken extremely seriously in Indonesia, but officially the country has no major crime problems. With a total prisoner population of just 84,357, it has the 13th largest number of prisoners in the world. However, with such a large national population, its prisoner per capita rate is 145th largest of 164 nations, with just 38 per 100,000 of the population. And while the country retains the capital punishment, just one execution took place in 2007.
