Cherryland Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


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


  • Residential Security: Cherryland’s residents often commute to nearby San Leandro or Hayward for work and leisure, which means that their homes can be vacant for extended periods of time. This can leave their residencies exposed. With crime rates extremely high in both categories, it’s necessary that the residents have some form of security to protect their homes. First Security Services can provide both neighborhood patrol services, as well as help to install advanced alarm systems.
  • Food & Beverage Security: There is not too much in the way of variety in Cherryland, but there are some restaurants, cafes, and bars in the town. Some of the prominent ones include: Buffalo Bill’s Brewery, Val’s Burgers, and Everett & Jones Barbeque. First Security Services can make sure that each and every one of these establishments has the necessary security in place, either during opening hours or after-hours, and can even provide a security assessment to determine any particular risks.
  • Points of Interest Security: The main point of attraction in Cherryland is Meek Mansion. There is also a local farmers market in the area that is extremely popular during the warmer months of the year. Most residents, though, travel to some of larger nearby cities in order to see different attractions, as well as for entertainment. The scenery that surrounds Cherryland is quite beautiful in and of itself and is an attraction all on its own. There are plenty of opportunities in the area for nature lovers.
  • Cannabis security solutions

By hiring First Security, companies, organizations, and institutions, both of the private and public variety, will be able to ensure that they’re provided professional protection in regards to:


  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Intrusions
  • Employee Safety
  • Customer Safety
  • Violent Crimes


Residents in Cherryland should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe.
