Our trained guard dogs with their superior senses and their professional handlers form a formidable crime deterrent team. When it comes to security, dogs are always effective and efficient, whether they are detecting, tracking, or working in mobile emergency response units. Our dogs patrol areas such as sprawling industrial sites in Zona Franca and exclusive gated communities around Barcelona.

We have revolutionised the role of the hotel concierge for hotels in Barcelona. Our highly trained personnel possess a unique blend of security expertise and exceptional customer service skills. From luxurious hotels near the iconic Sagrada Familia to business hotels near El Prat airport, our concierge security guards add value and security to the hotel industry.

Residential Security Services

From the luxury homes and gated communities in affluent neighbourhoods, such as Pedralbes, Sarrià, and Sant Gervasi, to apartment blocks near the city centre, our residential security services provide safety and security to residents across the city.

Whether you own a business in the city centre or a residential property in one of Barcelona’s many affluent neighbourhoods, our trusted keyholder security service gives you peace of mind by keeping your premises secure. Our security professionals take responsibility for securing your premises, liaising with statutory services, and resetting your system when false triggers occur.

Mobile Patrolling Security Services

Our mobile patrolling service offers a visible deterrent to criminals that is typically a less intrusive and more affordable option than static guards. Drive-by and walk-through inspections enable us to keep a close eye on homes and commercial buildings, ensuring that properties remain secure and that security breaches are spotted and dealt with at the earliest opportunity.

    Security in Barcelona

    With a population of approximately 1.6 million people, Barcelona is a popular tourist destination and a hub for international trade. Private security companies play an important role in ensuring public safety, particularly in the protection of commercial properties and wealthy residents.

    Maritime security for commerce and the private sector is another important aspect of security in Barcelona. The Port of Barcelona is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and a major economic hub for the region.

    Barcelona also has a marina known as Port Vell that provides mooring facilities for leisure boats and luxury yachts of all sizes. The marina is also a popular destination for tourists, with restaurants, shops, and other attractions nearby.

    Overall, the reported crime rate in the city has decreased recently, and it remains a safe city for residents and visitors. But like any major city, there are always going to be pockets of crime to address.

    Three recent customer questions answered

    This depends on the event and the type of security required. Uniformed security guards are much easier to spot should an attendee need help or another incident occur. On the other hand, non-uniformed security guards might be more fitting for a corporate event, a wedding, or when you need security to mingle with crowds. A mix of the two is always a possibility.

    Yes, we do offer remote monitoring services in Barcelona. Along with installing technology like CCTV cameras and motion detectors for remote monitoring, we also set up central control rooms with monitoring stations that are staffed 24 hours a day. These are suitable for private homes left vacant as well as commercial businesses like retail shops.

    Here at SGE, experience has taught us that one size never fits all and that budgets differ. Because of this, we are a flexible company that can adapt what we do to meet the needs of our clients. We offer free security audits to identify priorities, and our standard policy is that we never inflate services with unnecessary or unwanted elements.
