    “We in the city government of Makati are heartened by the city’s upgraded stature among the safest cities in Southeast Asia, as shown by the latest report from Numbeo. It is a validation of our sincere commitment to the continuous improvement of quality of life in the city, through building safe and resilient communities where all citizens are empowered to attain their full potential,” Makati City Mayor Abby Binay said in a statement.

    Mayor Binay associated the city’s high safety index with the sustained efforts of the city government, together with the local police force, in maintaining peace and order. 

    Said efforts include the increase in police visibility and other investments in disaster response and security.

    Makati has also been consistently implementing programs to improve the quality of life of both residents and transients.

    The mayor noted that the strong local government support for national government agencies in the protective sector also contributes to the high safety index results of Makati City.
