Alameda Private Security Guards & Services

Welcome to Alameda’s finest security guard service agency, First Security Services!


Alameda private security services


For a smaller city of 73,812 people, Alameda does a good job looking after its own considering the unemployment rate is only at 6.5%.  Having a low unemployment rate is certainly a favorable quality to have, especially when property values are $300,000 dollars above national average.  With this said, a few years back the property market had been twice as expensive as it is now.   The fluctuation in real estate does not seem to signify economic distress.  In fact, the businesses of Alameda are healthy and at standard risk of crime.  Something different to note about the city is that it has adopted a council-manager government, meaning that the city is chartered as opposed to regulated by general law.



Since the crime index is average, the way in which the city runs seems to have no positive or negative effects on stopping crime.  This is where we come in: First Security should be your first choice for preventive and protective services.  Our company and its officers are proven professionals in our field and work hard to keep any area safe.  Take a look at our services and see what we can do for you:


Alameda Retail and Residential Security Services

The residential areas in Alameda are beautiful – it is a case of truly getting what you’ve paid for.  There seems to be a perfect balance between neighborhoods and retail districts; it is an appropriate separation of business and personal relations.  Small universities are also present throughout the city indicating that there may be a large student population.  In saying this, approximately 88% of students are expected to graduate high school in Alameda so the universities must also attract outsiders.  First Security engages with the diversity of Alameda and offers the following security services:


  • Campus and School Security: Universities and colleges have large populations of students that need supervising.  Security can offer assistance and guidance for young adults feeling endangered while on school grounds.
  • Mall Security: Shoplifting needs to be prevented in order to minimize profit losses for local business.  Malls and complexes are under constant threat of theft.
  • Food Industry Services: Restaurants are susceptible to crime just as any other institution.  Managers must prepare to face unruly guests and non-paying diners.  A security officer on premise helps to enforce restaurant policies in a friendly and welcoming manner.
  • Special Events: Sporting games, work functions, bloc parties, conventions, concerts, and organized retreats all attract large groups of people in small, often enclosed, spaces.  A security presence is needed to prevent rowdiness and a loss of control.
  • Cannabis security solutions

Alameda Institutional and Corporate Security Services

There is one hospital in Alameda that many residents have found employment with.  Because of this, medical research and technological studies have become an important component for the city’s economy.  First Security anticipates the dangers associated with such fields of work and offers the following services for protection:


  • Biotech Laboratory Security:  Research facilities are under constant threat of exposure and theft.  First Security works hard to keep unwanted individuals off the premises.
  • Healthcare and Hospital Security:  In order for doctors and nurses to perform their duties, the hospital must be clear of danger.  Hospitals should encourage healing; security must be put in place to keep the patients and staff safe at all times.

Just because administrative and labor industries are not as prominent in Alameda’s economy does not mean that office buildings, construction sites, and warehouses don’t need security.  Similar to government and corporate locations, these workplaces are in need of executive security plans.  24 hours surveillance is always an asset when trying to stop vandalism and theft.    For banks, airports, and even biotech labs, security may need to take additional force to stay on top of things.  For this reason First Security officers are trained for both armed and unarmed confrontations.  Explicit in the contract, an institution may request for our security officers to handle weaponry.  We guarantee that our assigned personnel will be responsible with their firearm at all times.
