Police in Lisbon

The police maintain a fairly visible presence in Lisbon, with officers present at many local events and patroling in cars. The Polícia de Segurança Pública (PSP) is Portugal's main urban police force.

Drug-related petty crime maybe a problem after dark in some areas of the city and the Intendente area of the capital is often cited as a place to be wary. On the whole, Lisbon is very safe compared with other European capitals.
