The oldest independent state in the Arab world, Oman is one of the more traditional countries in the Gulf region and was, until the 1970s, one of the most isolated. It is strategically placed at the mouth of the Gulf at south-east corner of the Arabian Peninsula and, in the 19th century, vied with Portugal and Britain for influence in the Gulf and Indian Ocean. The country has so far been spared the militant Islamist violence that has plagued some of its neighbours. Oman has not been immune from the groundswell of political dissent in the region, however. Protests in 2011 demanding reforms were dispersed by riot police, and the government began a crackdown on internet criticism the following year.

Generally speaking, crime is limited to crimes of opportunity and petty theft. High-value items that can be easily transported (small electronics, cash, and jewelry) remain the most common items stolen. Vehicle theft is also prevalent, especially when drivers leave their keys in the car when they run into a store to purchase items. Violent crimes (assaults, rapes, and murder) are extremely rare.
Residential break-ins in Muscat declined slightly in 2013 (the most recent data available). Since late 2010, seven U.S. Embassy residences have been burglarized in the Medinat Qaboos area, but none occurred in 2014. Break-ins have occurred near U.S. Embassy residences, including an apartment building occupied by several U.S. Embassy employees. Cybercrime remains limited to common scams requesting money upfront for promised services or chances to obtain more money with a down payment
