Bisbee is a fairly safe place to visit.  Having said this, there are certain precautions that should be taken in order to ensure a smooth trip through Arizona.  Like always, common sense is the most important tool to be used in staying safe.

            Although street crime, petty theft, and burglary are not major concerns in Bisbee, they occasionally happen.  However, most of these situations can be avoided using a few simple rules.  Avoid carrying around large amounts of money or looking extremely flashy.  Drawing un-needed attention is never a good idea.  Lock all car doors and roll up windows when leaving valuables behind in a car.

            Avoid walking alone at night (especially women).  This is a general recommendation for any unfamiliar area, but should be followed in Bisbee as well.  If staying with a group is not an option and walking is unavoidable, try to remain in lighted, public areas.

            In the case of an emergency while visiting Bisbee, dial 911 from any phone.  In non-emergency situations, contact the Bisbee Police Department at: (520) 432-2261
