General Overview of Emeryville, California


Emeryville is located in Alameda County, California and is considered to be a city, despite its small size. It is situated right in between the City of Berkeley and the City of Oakland and extends to the end of the San Francisco Bay. Furthermore, Emeryville is also extremely close to San Francisco and Silicon Valley.


The total population of Emeryville is 10,080, which is an increase from 2000, in which it was 6,882.




It has a total area of 2.010 square miles, giving it a population density of of 8,089 people per square mile. This is a relatively high population density, though not extreme by any means.


Emeryville’s median age is 35 years, a number which is neither high nor low.


In comparison, the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years, and the national median age is 37.2 years. Emeryville’s median age is 1.7 years above the state average and is just 2.2 years below the national average.


32.9% of the population is at least 45 years old.


The origins of Emeryville can be tracked back to December 2nd, 1896, which was when it became incorporated. It was named after Joseph Stickney Emery, a man who originally came to the area during the California Gold Rush.


Today, Emeryville has emerged as the main headquarters of many prominent companies. Pixar Animation Studios, Jamba Juice, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Clif Bar, and The Center of Investigative Reporting are all located in the area, plus an additional host of companies.


Its position near Silicon Valley and the other major cities and areas in the San Francisco Bay Area has spurred on its economic growth and influence.


Emeryville, despite having several major companies located within it, doesn’t have an extremely wealthy population, though they are above-average. Its median household income is $65,259, a number which has jumped considerably since 2000, in which its median household income was $45,359.


In contrast, the State of California has a median household income of $58,328, and the United States has a median household income of $53,046. Emeryville’s median household income is much higher than the national average but is not too far above the state average.


Unfortunately, Emeryville has a very high crime rate, giving it the distinction of having the second highest crime rate in the San Francisco Bay Area after Oakland. It has a crime rate index of 2, meaning that it’s safer than just 2% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 93 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Emeryville and a 1 in 7 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California has a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime. One thing to note is that Emeryville’s crime rate is a bit misleading in that much of the crime that occurs there comes from residents from Oakland, which it borders.


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


Emeryville Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


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


  • Residential Security: Emeryville may be home to such companies as Pixar, but its crime rate due to the spillover from bordering Oakland is a major cause for concern. Its residents are above-average in wealth and should make every effort to make sure that they’re protected. First Security Services can help to install advanced alarm systems, as well as to provide neighborhood patrol services if needed. The high crime rate in Emeryville means that a high level of security protection is a must for residents.
  • Food & Beverage Security: There are a decent selection of restaurants, bars, and cafes in Emeryville. Some of the main ones include: Townhouse Bar & Grill, Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe, Wally’s Cafe, Scend’s Restaurant, Los Cantaros, and Doyle Street Cafe. The high crime rate in the area, including the sky high property crime rates, means that all of these establishments should have security protection in place. First Security Services has a tremendous amount of experience in providing security to business locations and would be able to make sure that each and every one is protected.
  • Points of Interest Security: Emeryville’s proximity to Oakland, San Francisco, and the other parts of the Bay Area means that finding something to do is never an issue. However, within Emeryville itself, there are still some points of interest. The Emeryville Marina is one such place and is great to go to for a walk and to view the sunset. Bay Street is also located in Emeryville and features an outdoor mall and an area that is always busy and full of energy.
  • Cannabis risk management

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

  • Employee Safety

  • Violent Crimes


Residents in Emeryville should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe. In addition, a great service, especially given how small Emeryville is, would be to install alarm systems.
