    Security in Basel

    Basel, with a population of around 200,000 people, is located in northwestern Switzerland and is a major cultural and economic centre in the region. According to the statistics website Numbeo, the crime and safety index figures for Basel are:

    Crime Index:26.24
    Safety Index:73.76

    Despite being a relatively safe city, crime has been rising recently and causing concern.

    For example, the number of property crimes, which includes theft and burglary, rose to 21,329 in 2023, a figure 18% higher than in 2022. The canton of Basel-City borders France and Germany. This means there are many points where criminals can quickly escape across a border into a neighbouring country

    Maritime and transport security are important sectors in Basel. The Port of Switzerland (Schweizerische Rheinhäfen) is located in Basel and is a crucial inland port for the country. It is a vital hub for trade and commerce, connecting Switzerland to other European countries via the Rhine River.

    Our maritime security services provide static and patrolling security guards to regulate port access. We also oversee container and cargo storage areas and offer onboard security that safeguards against theft, piracy, and stowaways.

    We provide associated transport and warehouse security that protects high-value cargo transported from departure points in Basel to destinations across Europe. Basel’s strategic location makes it an important transit point for goods moving between Switzerland and other European nations.
