General Overview of Brentwood, California

Brentwood is a city located on Contra Costa County, California. It is in the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically the East Bay region.


Containing a population of of 51,481, it is one of the fastest growing areas in California. In 2000, its population was almost half of what it is now, as it was 23,302.


The total area of Brentwood is 14.805 square miles. This gives it population density of around 3,500 people per square mile. This is a bit high but also common when one considers that it’s a legitimate small-sized city that’s growing rapidly.


The history of Brentwood is quite interesting. The actual land of Brentwood was part of a donation from the owner of it, John Marsh. Marsh was an extremely successful businessman who was one of the early pioneers in Contra Costa County, specifically the eastern side. The name of “Brentwood” comes from the Brentwood that’s located in Essex County, England.


Brentwood was thus established in 1837, obtained its first post office in 1878, and was finally incorporated in 1948.


Originally, Brentwood was considered to be a rural community full of farmers. However, it soon became a bedroom community. The transition started in 1910, when Balfour, Guthrie & Co. purchased the John Marsh ranch. It ended up building the Brentwood Hotel and Brentwood Boulevard, investing heavily into the city.


As a bedroom community, 99.7% of the population lives in households. The median age of the population is 35.6 years. That’s right above the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years and is also just below the national median age of 37.2 years.


It’s actually a low median age for a rural area. Only 34.1% of the population in Brentwood is 45 years old and older.


The median household income in Brentwood is $91,875, making it one of the richest areas in California. It’s a number that has risen considerably since 2000, when it was $69,198. It’s much higher than the State of California’s average of $58,328 and the national average of $53,046. Keep in mind that this rise in median household income is happening simultaneously as the population continues to rise as well. Brentwood is one of the “it” cities in California right now, as it is thriving.


Despite it being a wealthy city, it has a sizable level of crime. Its crime rate index is 30, meaning that it’s safer than 30% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 567 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Brentwood, compared to the State of California’s 1 in 249 chance.


Furthermore, there is a 1 in 42 chance of being a victim of a property crime, while the State of California chances are 1 in 38.


Property crime thus occurs at a much higher rate. Because many of the residents in Brentwood have a large amount of wealth, their homes can be targets for home invasions. Many criminals from nearby areas or even within the city itself may be tempted to break in.


First Security understands the security needs of Brentwood  and Contra Costa County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Brentwood  Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

First Security can help protect those in Brentwood  by providing the following specific security services:


  • Residential Security: As a bedroom community, virtually everyone in Brentwood lives in a household. Many of the residents of Brentwood commute to other areas and cities in the San Francisco Bay Area for work. That means that their homes are unoccupied for long periods of time on a daily basis, making them a prime target. First Security Services would be able to provide advanced alarm systems. It also can perform residential security patrols.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Brentwood has a large downtown area that is lined with a host of different bars, restaurants, cafes, and even clubs. First Security Services can provide security guards there to make sure that patrons have an enjoyable experience and that no situation gets out of hand. Some examples include Sweeney’s Grill and Bar, Brentwood Cafe, and Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill. Brentwood is becoming increasingly populated, so these places are becoming more and more busy.
  • Points of Interest Security: Some of the main points of interest in Brentwood are East Contra Costa Historical Society and Museum- east of Brentwood on Sellers Road, Los Vaqueros Reservoir, Marsh Creek Regional Trail, and the Streets of Brentwood shopping center. In addition, there’s a farmers market held there every Saturday morning between April and October. Finally, there’s also the Brentwood “Cornfest” that occurs once a year in July. This can involve some inebriation, so security services are important.

  • Vandalism
