The study revealed that the negative aspects of social change could not be ignored; the rapid change of society due to the influx of foreigners to work did have such negative aspects. Moreover, the religious visitors for hajj and ummera and economic changes have included attracted many immigrants who stay and exert considerable influence on the civil stability of the country. Females commit most of these crimes and the statistical figures revealed that crime rate was higher for female foreigners than for female Saudis. As we shall see, these studies have relevance to police effectiveness.
