General Overview of Millbrae, California


Millbrae is a city that’s located in San Mateo County, California. More specifically, it is located extremely close to San Francisco Bay, which is to the east. In addition, to the north of Millbrae is San Bruno and to the south is Burlingame.


The population of Millbrae is 21,536, a small increase from its population in 2000, in which it was 20,718.


Millbrae’s total area is 3.259 square miles, giving it a population density of 6,906 people per square mile. This is a fairly high population density but is nothing too out of the ordinary considering that Millbrae is a city, albeit a small one.


It has a median age of 44.8 years, which is on the higher end.


In comparison, the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years and the national median age is  37.2 years. Millbrae’s median age is 11.5 and 7.6 years higher, respectively.


49.8% of the population is at least 45 years old. This showcases that the population in Millbrae skews older.


The history of Millbrae can be traced back to the 1860s, in which Darius Odgen Mills bought a large amount of land in order to build a country estate. Eventually, this country estate came to be known as “Millbrae” instead of “Mills.” The “brae” part of the name is Scottish for “rolling hills,” a characteristic of the area.


Sadly, the mansion that once sat on this estate was destroyed by a fire in 1954 during, ironically, a “fire drill.”


The city continued to grow in the 20th century, and its residents have fought vigorously to preserve its status as a city and also its historical elements. A famous example took place in the 1950s, in which the residents of Millbrae successfully prevented the Junipero Serra Highway from being built through its city.


Millbrae’s median household income is $91,580, an extremely high number. In 2000, its median household income was $68,404, which shows how much Millbrae has improved since then.


This number is much higher than both the State of California’s median household income of $58,328 and the national median household income of $53,046


Not surprisingly, Millbrae’s crime rate is not high. It has a crime rate index of 46, meaning that it’s safer than 46% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 801 chance of being a victim of a violent in crime in Millbrae and a 1 in 57 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. Millbrae obviously fares much better than the State of California as it pertains to its violent crime rate, but its property crime rate is much closer to the state average.


First Security understands the security needs of Millbrae and San Jose in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Millbrae Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


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


  • Residential Security: Millbrae may be a city, but for many, it’s now a bedroom community. A large amount of its residents commute to the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Jose and San Francisco, for work on a daily basis, meaning that their homes are vacant for an extended period of time. The high median household income of Millbrae’s residents, which is because many of them work in Silicon Valley, means that their homes can become a target. First Security Services recommends installing, at the very least, advanced alarm systems, which can be done through First Security. Neighborhood security patrol options are also available.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Despite being a small city, Millbrae has a plentiful amount of restaurants, bars, and cafes. Some of the notable ones are: The Third Eye Restaurant & Bar, Fiddler’s Green, Cloudz Hookah Lounge, La Collina, Big Mouth Burgers, and Zen Bistro. Its places range from the affordable to the high-priced, and many of them can get packed with people on certain nights of the week. First Security Services can make sure that they all have the necessary amount of security in place at all times.
  • Points of Interest Security: Given its close proximity to the City of San Francisco and other parts of the Bay Area, there is not too much to do in Millbrae itself. However, the Bayfront Park in Millbrae is a nice area to go for a walk and features fantastic views of the airport from a distance, allowing you to see planes taking off and landing regularly. Most of those who live in Millbrae venture over to San Francisco for events, museums, and so forth.


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 Millbrae 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 Millbrae  is, would be to install alarm systems through First Security. By installing the alarm systems, you will have 24/7 monitoring and will have the authorities at your doorstep as fast as possible should any break-ins occur!


What makes First Security stand out is that every single First Security officer has been trained extensively on weaponry, restraining strategies, and combat PLUS the ability to peacefully resolve situations. First Security works with each and every company to find out their particular security needs and what they expect the service to entail, even as it pertains to the behavior of the First Security officers.
