Anguilla Country Report
With a reasonable road network and good access to major airports, ongoing investment in upgrading port facilities, and a modern telecommunications system, infrastructure in Anguilla is relatively good by regional standards. Recovery of infrastructure – including roads and ports – post Hurricane Irma in September 2017 is continuing steadily with support from the UK. The island's offshore financial sector will have to adopt a public ownership register by 2023 or have it imposed by the UK government. However, corruption is not a major concern on Anguilla. Disruptive strike action is uncommon in Anguilla by regional standards.
The terrorism risk is low. There are no known domestic or foreign terrorist groups that would target Anguilla.
According to the Royal Antilles Police Force, overall crime levels have fallen year on year since 2015, and are very low by regional standards, with a total of only five murders recorded for the period January–December 2018. Private-sector firms are encouraged to protect against robberies by using burglar-alarms, employing security officers, or contracting one of the island's handful of security companies. Although the government is committed to keeping crime under control because of its importance to the tourism industry, the police force is small. Some foreign nationals have been among the victims of violent attacks in recent years, including sexual assault.
The war risk is low. Anguilla is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom and would benefit from its protection if threatened by another state.
