General Overview of Jackson, California

Jackson is officially the county seat in Amador County, California. It’s a town that has a population of 4,651, in which the total land mass is 3.730 square miles, giving it a population density of 1,200 people per square mile. Its population has increased since 2000, when it was 3,989.


It’s a town with a very interesting history, having gone by the previous nicknames of Botilleas, Botilleas Spring, Bottileas, Bottle Spring, and Botellas. Originally, it was occupied by Northern Sierra Indians, but by 1848 and the California Gold Rush, it was occupied by those who dared to venture out into the frontier. It also got its name that very year from Colonel Alden Jackson, who was also a lawyer that many of the gold miners took a liking to. Amador County in general became a popular location for mining and Jackson became an important place to stop on the way from Sacramento to the mines at the Sierra foothills. It also was a town that supplied some of the neighboring towns, which is why it eventually became the county seat of Amador County, which it still holds to this day.


It continued to be a mining area until World War II, when the U.S. Government ended gold mining in California with the War Production Board Limitation Order.


Currently, it has a median age of 46 years, which is above-average in the State of California, which averages 33.3 years. 25.2% of its population are 65 years old or older. Females also outnumber males in Jackson in that, for every 84.1 males, there are 100 females.


The crime rate index in Jackson is 11, which means that it is only safer than 11% of all cities in the United States. It is not a safe area at all, as there is a 1 in 25 chance of becoming a victim of a property crime, while there is a 1 in 190 chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime. The State of California’s averages are 1 in 38 and 1 in 249 respectively.


Violent crimes in Jackson are a great cause for concern, since it has a rate that is one of the highest in not just the State of California but also all across the United States. Perhaps this is due to its mining history and the wild wild west set-up of it originally, but what can’t be disputed is that this is not a very safe area to live in, especially when one considers that the median age of its population skews on the older side. This means that they are especially at risk.


The median household income in Jackson is low, since it numbers $42,323. The State of California has a median household income of $58,328. This low median household income corresponds with its high crime rate. Perhaps Jackson has not fully recovered since its gold mining days ended in 1942. A positive sign for it though is that its median household income was $35,944 in 2000, so it has been improving a bit.


It’s also a small town, and with violent crimes such as rape being a concern, hiring First Security Services will be extremely beneficial in providing expert security protection for both the residents and the business owners in the area.


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

  • Points of Interest Security: For a small town, there is actually a lot to do and see in Jackson. The Jackson Main Street is popular with both locals and some tourists, with the tourists visiting it due to the historical buildings that it contains. The main attraction among tourists though are the Argonaut and Kennedy Mines, which have been named as California Historical Landmarks. They are maintained today as tourist attractions and attract thousands of tourists a year. First Security Services can provide all of the security services needed to make sure that both employees and visitors remain safe.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Being the main center of Amador County, much of the shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses are in Jackson. The Jackson Main Street contains an abundance of restaurants and bars that its residents frequent, meaning that security could be needed to make sure that no one gets out of hand. The Jackson Rancheria is a major hotel and casino in the area run by the Me-Wuk Indians of California. A hotel and casino in this area, with the high crime rate, could use as much security as possible.
