East Palo Alto Private Security Guards & Services

Welcome to East Palo Alto’s finest security guard service agency, First Security Services!


Ironically, East Palo Alto is not only its own independent city but it is also located north of Palo Alto despite what its name suggests.  The cost of living in East Palo Alter is less than one would expect; however, income levels have also dropped and may account for the differences.  Since 2000, East Palo Alto has lost 4.4% of its population size, dropping to 28,201 people living in the city.  While violent crimes are less frequent compared to ten years ago, other forms of criminal activity are still a major struggle for the city.  Currently East Palo Alto hovers around a crime index of 3.3%.  This is a steep statistic since the city is only 2.55 square miles in area.

The real estate market plummeted for East Palo Alto during 2008. Over the last few years the city has slowly recuperated its market but is still nowhere close to what it had been.  For families and business currently in East Palo Alto, property protection is essential.  Trust First Security to look after all of your security needs through the following available services:

  • 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 protection services
  • 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.

Although only 48% of East Palo Alto`s population is reported to have graduated high-school, there should still be a focus on campus and school security.  Ravenswood City School District`s headquarters is located in city as well and should be investigating new approaches to encourage students to succeed in school.

East Palo Alto Institutional and Corporate Security Services

The most popular industries in the city consist of retail, administration, food, and accommodation services.  In light of this, First Security offers the following services:


  • 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.
  • Bank and Airport Security:  Both of these institutions have very valuable assets that needed protecting.  The risk of violent crimes for banks and airports is much higher and must be anticipated.
  • 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.
