The Planet Skaro, as it's populated by a xenophobic race who want to exterminate all other life in the multi-verse.

In addition to Azkhaban Prison (as someone mentioned), the entire Harry Potter world, where children are given deadly weapons through which they focus super powers. There appears to be no police force of much consequence, or army. In fact it appears that the world's entire security force is dependent on one old man.

The place where the ghastly Australian series Blue Heelers was set. I could never bring myself to watch it but going on the previews in TV guides and onscreen, some small town in Victoria was the crime capital of the planet. Murders, kidnappings, drug cartels, gang wars...you name it, it happened there. Cabot Cove was entirely crime-free compared to that place.
I think I watched the first couple of episodes but all I know fter that comes from promos and hearing other people talking about the show.

I looked it up on Wikipedia and the town was Mount Thomas and, going by the cast list this small town had 5 policemen assigned to it at the beginning of season one - which must surely make it the most heavily policed small town in Australia.
Not really. Mount Thomas had a population close to 8,000 or 9,000, so that's a modest number of police for a town of that size, not to mention whatever the surrounding population would have been. Statistically Australia has just over 2 police per 1,000 population, so Mount Thomas isn't too bad.

Wouldn't the alternative be worse? A world where super powered children cannot control those superpowers? There is a police force, the Aurors, though small in number are well trained and powerful. And who needs an army when you have a society of super powered people?
