Denmark, Greenland, and the Faeroe Islands have relatively low crime rates. However, travelers to Copenhagen and other major Danish cities can become targets for pickpockets and sophisticated purse-snatchers. Purses and luggage are particular targets for thieves in hotel lobbies and breakfast rooms, fast food outlets, and Copenhagen's main train station. Car and home break-ins are also on the rise. The loss or theft abroad of a u.s. passport should be reported immediately to local police and to the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Department of State's pamphlet A Safe Trip Abroad. It is available from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402, via the Internet at http://www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs, or http://travel.state.gov.
