Security Company South East England
Phaseone is one of the leading security companies in the South East of England and provide a range of on-site security, mobile security and electronic security services. England’s third-largest region, the South East is comprised of the counties of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, the Isle of Wight, Oxfordshire and Surrey.
Major cities include Brighton and Hove, Canterbury, Chichester, Oxford, Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester. Its closeness to London and good road links have helped turn South East England into an economic hub, and it has the second-largest economy in the country, after the capital. Home to the UK’s second major airport, Gatwick Airport, its coast on the English Channel lies just 21 miles from France at its closest point, making it a convenient gateway to mainland Europe.

Crime in South East England
There was a total of 14,427 crimes committed in Kent during January 2017 (http://www.ukcrimestats.com/Police_Force/Kent_Police), covering a large area of South East England. Phaseone can help residents of this region prevent crime through our security services, helping you to ensure that your Kent home doesn’t become one of the burglary victims that 3,000+ homes became from November 2016-January 2017 (http://www.ukcrimestats.com/Police_Force/Kent_Police).
It’s not just Kent in South East England that’s affected by crime, either. Up to September 2015 saw several jumps in murder figures for the area, including up to 15 from seven in Surrey; seven up to 16 in the Thames Valley and it went from five victims to 13 in Sussex (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/12112024/Violent-crime-jumps-27-in-new-figures.html).
While there are limited reports of fire fatalities in South East England, a rise of 21% in fire-related deaths across the whole of England for 2015 (https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/apr/26/fire-deaths-rise-by-21-as-chiefs-issue-cuts-warning) shows that South East England residents need to remain as alert as possible to avoid serious casualties. Speaking to Phaseone is the first step, as we provide cleaning, property maintenance and security services, helping communities in the South East stay safe.
