A new poll has revealed that Thai people report feeling less safe in their country due to crime.

The poll, conducted by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University, comes in the wake of several high-profile crimes across the Kingdom, most notably the Lop Buri gold robbery and murder of a woman by a convicted serial killer who was recently released from prison by a royal pardon.

Over two-thirds of respondents stated that their personal security was more at risk due to crime, with the remaining respondents mostly saying that it was the same as before.

The outcomes of criminal trials in Thailand are typically determined by a three-judge panel, not a jury of peers.

When questioned about what crimes they fear specifically, 68% said they fear robberies, 33% said they fear violence with weapons such as knives and guns, 25% said they fear the spread of harmful drugs, and 21% said they fear sexual violence.

Those surveyed in the poll responded that the causes of worsening crime could be boiled down to the poor economy (54%), deteriorated social conditions (25%), low moral standards (18%), and poor law enforcement (15%).

Just under half said that the government should do more to strengthen law enforcement and amend laws to quell crime.
