Gilroy’s real estate market has been recovering since an unexpected spike in 2010.  As of late, the city has managed to bring home sales back down to being feasible heights.  This has helped families regain financial control and invest in business opportunities in the city.  For the most part, the 48,821 residents of Gilroy are all exposed to an average amount of criminal activity in their communities – it is something they are familiar with but not encountering every day.


The fluctuation in crime are perhaps caused by places like Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park which lures a heavy stream of tourism into the area.  In order to continue attracting visitors, the city of Gilroy must present itself as a safe place to live.  First Security can help obtain this reputation through the following services we offer individuals and companies:


Gilroy Retail and Residential Security Services

Gilroy has been known to be called the “garlic capital of the world” due to the agricultural success of the city.  Annually, the residents of Gilroy hold a special Garlic Crop Festival that attracts people from all over California in celebration.  For special events such as this First Security recommends its services.  For retail business and neighborhoods, First Security provides the following services:


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

Gilroy Institutional and Corporate Security Services

As mentioned above, Gilroy yields garlic in mass amounts; however, less popularly known, Gilroy is also a leader for producing mushrooms.  It is no wonder that Gilroy Foods Plant has become an economic powerhouse for Santa Clara County.  To maintain the success of Gilroy’s agricultural practices, companies should consider the following services:


  • Office Building, Construction Site and Warehouse Security:  Crop fields and production facilities need to be secured from people and wildlife.  To protect the crops First Security works to keep things out of fragile places.
  • Government and Corporate Services: Executive institutions need executive security measures.  Agencies in this field need to ensure a level of confidentiality and professionalism. First Security is the first to rise to this challenge.
  • Bank and Airport Security:  Because of the high level of tourism in Gilroy it is important to ensure the safety of their visitors and how it is they arrive.
  • 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.


Although many of the above are not directly relevant to Gilroy’s immediate economy, they are still all important institutions.   For each of First Security’s services armed and unarmed solutions are available 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.
