Georgia has scored 88 out of total 100 points in Gallup’s 2021 Law and Order Index. 

Georgia is among the top 20 safest countries, along with Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and others, out of 115 countries and areas reviewed in the report. 

The report presented the results from Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s answers to several questions related to safety and law enforcement, based on interviews with more than 120,000 adults in 115 countries and areas in 2020.
