Crime

Crime is not really an issue while on your vacation.  Sanibel has their own police and fire forces and they do a great job.  Since 2002 there has been 1 murder, 1 rape, and 4 robberies.  The biggest crimes are car break ins and burglaries.  Do not leave any valuables in your car when you park for the beach and always lock your car doors.  Condo or house break ins occur occasionally but usually they are through an open sliding door so just lock your doors.    Since installing cameras at most of the beach parking lots the number of car break ins has dropped considerably also.  Just be smart and don’t leave valuables in plain view in your car when heading to the beach and be sure to lock your doors and you should have no worries at all while about crime while on your vacation on Sanibel.
