    Porto, a charming and picturesque city in Portugal, is a popular destination for tourists and a hub for trade and commerce. With a population of over 230,000 people, Porto boasts a vibrant and diverse community, drawing visitors from all over the world.

    The crime index figure for Porto is 38.54, which is relatively low compared to other major cities in Europe. However, as with any major city experiencing rapid growth, there are always security challenges that security companies like SGE are asked to address to ensure the safety of tourists and residents.

    Maritime security is a critical sector in Porto. The Port of Leixões (Porto de Leixões) is the second-busiest in Portugal, handling both cargo and cruise ships. Located on the Atlantic Ocean, it is a vital gateway for trade and tourism in the region.

    Porto has a long history of manufacturing, with a focus on textiles, footwear, and metalworking. Along with industrial security services, it also depends heavily on transport and warehouse security services that protect high-value cargo manufactured in the city as it moves to destinations across Europe.
