Berkeley Private Security Guards & Services

Welcome to Berkeley`s finest security guard service agency, First Security Services!


Not only is Berkeley home to 112,765 people, but it is also the city in which the oldest University of California campus resides, alongside the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  In just 10.5 square miles, Berkeley has given rise to many national businesses while still leaving room for parks, recreational areas, and residential communities.  Unfortunately, the corporate nature of Berkeley has brought about a level of crime that is 91% higher than its state’s average.  In saying this, property values remain 62% above market and many student neighborhoods prosper year after year.

For such a diverse city, Berkeley needs a security company that can take on many forms and maintain a consistent quality service.  For First Security officers this will not be a problem – for over 15 years First Security has been protecting Californian institutions.  From personal to business-oriented, First Security has services for hire that will satisfy your every need and concern:

The university campuses are pivotal locations in Berkeley.  In fact, many residential areas have been developed on the outskirts of these facilities for the safe of convenience.  There are, of course, other neighborhoods in the city that are also perfect for families and business owners alike.  First Security works to keep the Berkeley community safe in the following ways:

  • Campus and School Security: Universities and colleges have large populations of students that need supervising.  Security guards 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.
  • Cannabis security solutions
  • 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.

Berkeley Institutional and Corporate Security Services

As educational service makes up a large portion of Berkeley’s economy, it is important to note that there are corporate solutions available to them as well.  For other popular industries, such as the professional, scientific, and technical, as well as construction and accommodation services, First Security offers support:

  • Office Building, Construction Site and Warehouse Security:  To protect against vandalism, intrusions, and theft, many work sites need to be protected with 24 hour security.
  • Government and Corporate Services: Executive institutions need executive security measures.  Agencies in this field need to be ensured a level of confidentiality and professionalism. First Security is the first to rise to this challenge.
  • 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.

The financial industry is not as prevalent in Berkeley as it is in other major cities.  With this said, First Security does not discriminate and includes banks in the list of services.  This same quality service extends to transportation hubs like airports and terminals.  One thing to keep in mind: all First Security services come available with both armed or unarmed officers for hire.  Every First Security officer has been trained to deal with a variety of confrontations.  Each guard has received extensive instruction on the proper use of weaponry, combat and restraining strategies, as well as peaceful techniques to diminish threats verbally.
