General Overview of Modesto, California

Modesto, California, known as the City of Modesto, is the largest city in Stanislaus County, in addition to being the county seat. It is also considered to be the 18th largest city in the entire State of California.


Its current population is 201,165, an increase from 2000 in which it was 188,856. With a total area of 37.092 square miles, which mostly consists of land, it has a population density of 5,400 people per square mile.


This is a bit above average for a city, but it’s too dense as to be overpopulated.


The median age of the population is 34.2 years. This is below the national median age of 37.2 years, yet is about a year above the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years. Modesto has a population that isn’t old or young, as it’s just about average in age.


36.4% of the population is at least 45 years old.


Its origins can be traced back to its role as a railroad stop on the Los Angeles to Sacramento route. It was officially founded in 1870 and named after William C. Ralston, a prominent financier at the time. He objected though due to his “modesty,” which led to the town being called Modesto.


By 1884, it was officially incorporated. It continued to grow throughout the 20th century, especially after World War II, in which it played a prominent role in supplying powdered milk, eggs, and canned products to the U.S. Armed Forces.


Modesto has a median household income of $46,329. This is a decent-sized increase from 2000, in which it was $40,394.


The State of California’s median household income is $58,328 and the national average is $53,046, so Modesto is far below both averages, particularly the state average. Nonetheless, the fact that it has shown an increase since 2000 is a good sign.


While Modesto does have an okay median household income, it really suffers when it comes to its crime rate.


Its crime rate index is a shockingly low 5, which means that it’s safer than only 5% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 118 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Modesto and a 1 in 20 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California’s averages are 1 in 249 and 1 in 38, respectively. As you can see, Modesto  is far below both averages.


Modesto’s crime rate is certainly troubling and is something that has to be addressed.


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


Modesto Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

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


  • Residential Security: Being that the crime rate is so bad in Modesto, security is a must for those living in the city. First Security Services can provide security patrols in some of the neighborhoods in the city, as well as advanced alarm services. It’s recommended that residents, at a minimum, have an alarm system installed in their home or in their apartment.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Modesto has an abundance of restaurants, bars, and cafes, especially since the modernization of its downtown area in the early 2000s. Some of the main places are Bella Italia, Modesto Sukiyaki, Rockin’ B’s Burger Company, P Wexford’s Pub, and Commonwealth. With high property crime rates and violent crime rates, it’s imperative that these places have security protection in them, particularly during busy work hours and after-hours.
  • Points of Interest Security: Besides its bustling and revitalized downtown area, Modesto does have various tourist attractions that are quite popular. The George Lucas Plaza is one of them, as it’s a statue inspired by American Graffiti, which was filmed there. In addition, there’s the McHenry Museum and the Graceada Park Neighborhood. Various parks exist throughout Modesto as well, with more being planned in the future.
  • Marijuana security

  • Vandalism

Residents in Modesto should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe.
