General Overview of Antioch, California
Antioch is a city that is located in Contra Costa County, California. It’s also considered to be part of the East Bay area of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is located alongside the San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta. Many also consider Antioch to be a sort of bedroom city, as it’s a suburb of both Oakland and San Francisco.
The population of Antioch is 102,372, which is an increase from 2000 in which it was 90,532. The total area of Antioch is 29.083 square miles, giving it a population density of 3,500 people per square mile. This is not too dense of a population for a city of its size.
Antioch has a very interesting history. It is among the oldest towns in California, first emerging in 1850. It was founded by William and Joseph Smith, two brothers, who called it Smith’s Landing.
Like many cities and towns in California at the time, it was founded during the California Gold Rush. However, it suffered a major tragedy just when it was founded, as a plague decimated the population of Antioch.
In 1851, Smith’s Landing was changed to Antioch. The reason for the name change was that the minister of the town wanted to name it after the biblical city of the same name.
By 1859, coal mining became one the main industries in Antioch, as well as some farming. The Empire Coal Company was founded in 1876, leading to a railroad being built from Antioch directly to the mines. The Antioch terminus is still in existence today.
Antioch also had a thriving copper mining industry for a brief period during the 1860s.
Officially, Antioch was incorporated in 1872.
While it’s mainly a bedroom community today, in the middle of the 1950s, Antioch gained the distinction of being “the home of the milk carton.” That’s thanks to Fibreboard Research and their creation of a way of putting wax coatings on cardboard.
The median age in Antioch is 33.8 years. This is almost identical with the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years and is a few years lower than the national median age of 37.2 years. 34.7% of the population is at least 45 years old.
Antioch also boasts a median household income of $59,356. This is almost the same as it was in 2000, in which it was $60,539. Still, this is not a great sign, as ideally, the median household income should grow, not slightly decrease.
The State of California’s median household income is $58,328 and the national average is $53,046, so Antioch is pretty much right in line with the state average.
One of the major downsides to Antioch is its crime rate. It has a crime rate index of 7, meaning that it’s safer than only 7% of all cities in the United States.
There is a 1 in 111 chance of being a victim of a violent crime, while in the State of California, there is a 1 in 249 chance.
Furthermore, there is a 1 in 23 chance of being a victim of a property crime, while the State of California has an average of 1 in 38.
First Security understands the security needs of Antioch and Contra Costa County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.
Antioch Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services
First Security can help protect those in Antioch by providing the following specific security services:
- Residential Security: As mentioned, Antioch is a bedroom community, acting as a suburb for San Francisco and Oakland. This means that many of the residents will be commuting to work on a daily basis, leaving their homes empty and thus, exposed. The extremely high crime rates in Antioch can’t be ignored, and First Security Services can help to make sure that all of the homes are protected at all times through patrol services.
- Food & Beverage Security: Both property crimes and violent crimes occur at extremely high rates in Antioch. Being that there’s an abundance of restaurants, bars, cafes, and even some clubs in the city, this is a major issue. Some of the main ones are Mac’s Old House, Cocina Medina, and Tailgaters Sports Bar & Grill 2. These places get very busy, despite Antioch being a bedroom community. Security guards can be provided by First Security Services to watch the patrons on the premises.
- Points of Interest Security: There are a total of 31 parks in Antioch, many of which are very popular with families. Late at night, some of these parks can be a bit dangerous though. There are also various historical buildings in Antioch, one of which is El Campanil Theatre. Another historical place that is registered with the National Register of Historical Places is the Shannon-Williamson Ranch.
- Cannabis security solutions
