Aptos Private Security Guards & Services

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


Aptos is one of Santa Cruz’s coast communities, with the Cabrillo Highway passing through. Aptos is significantly more densely populated then other communities in the Santa Cruz County and is therefore prone to more activity and –potentially – more risk than areas such as Ben Lomond or Brookdale.

With a population of 6,220 in 2010, Aptos lies on the beautiful Pacific shoreline. It is home to a number of businesses and establishments that need to protect their goods from those willing to take advantage. First security provides you with the comfort and peace of mind necessary to avoid risk.


Aptos is relatively safe place to live. With a crime index that is 48% lower than the Californian average there is very little harm posed to you compared to the rest of the country. First Security’s goal is to make sure the community of Aptos remains safe and secure.


Non-Residential Security Guards

Are you the owner of a private shop in downtown Aptos? Maybe you’re the president of a successful corporation in a more remote or vulnerable area of the Aptos. First Security has the ability to provide its services through the use of:


  • Video surveillance
  • Bodyguards
  • Vehicle patrol
  • Armed and unarmed security guards
  • Marijuana security
  • And many more services depending on your needs.


Growing a successful business at some point (some more frequently than others) will require some form of protective service, and no Santa Cruz retail shop or warehouse is immune from outside threats. While the Aptos region is relatively safe it is often prevention and not response that provides the most piece of mind to our clients. Therefore it is always worthwhile to turn to private security companies like First Security for added assurance.



If you are a resident of the Aptos area who has worked hard to settle yourself, it is only fair that you protect and secure yourself from the possible hazards that exist for any Santa Cruz resident. Our private security services can equip your home with video surveillance and, depending on the level of security you are looking for, vehicle patrol and/or specialized residential security guards.


The Aptos community is prone to the same risks as any other well-established, coastal community. To avoid becoming a target in your own home to, make sure to contact First Security to learn more about how we can customize and equip your home with the security essentials.



Aptos is also a significant tourist destination for anyone traveling up the California coastline. As well with hundreds of events being held in the Aptos area yearly, it is important to consider the safety, security, and behavior of those in attendance. If you or someone you know is organizing a special event in Aptos or is in need of temporary private security contractors, First Security has what you need to ensure the event runs smoothly.


Maybe you own a sports complex or arena that is host to hundreds of visitors on any given weekend. Aptos sporting events bring with them a mix of people from all over California and beyond. First Security wants to make sure these sporting events like these operate without problems, and keep the focus on the fun and entertainment of the event itself.
