Over the last decade the safety of Monterey has improved drastically.  Unfortunately, this is only the beginning of what needs to be accomplished.  The city’s crime index is 36% higher than that of California.  For residents of Monterey, the cost of living is slightly out of budget since the median household income falls below state standard.  In saying this, the 27,810 residents of Monterey get by just fine with occupations in the food, education, retail, and technical services.  First Security wishes to help Monterey accelerate crime reduction over the next few.



It is time for a strong, reliable company to come into the city and set things right that have been wronged by criminal activity.  First Security can do this through the following services:


Hire Monterey Personal, Retail and Residential Security Services

Residents of Monterey are well accommodated since the economy is reliant on the retail industry.  There are many business owners living in the city that should look to protect their investments as well as their property.  Here’s how First Security can help:


  • 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.
  • Food Industry Services: Restaurants are susceptible to crime just as any other institution.  Managers must prepare to face unruly guests and non-paying diners.  A security officer on premise helps to enforce restaurant policies in a friendly and welcoming manner.
  • Cannabis risk management

The annual Monterey Jazz Festival brings crowds of people together in celebration of good music.  For special events such as this, First Security lends a hand in keeping everyone safe so that they can enjoy the festivities without concern.  For large school campuses, these methods of protecting large bodies of people can be applied – we work to protect the faculty, students, and facility all at the same time.


Monterey Institutional and Corporate Security Services

As many people find jobs in retail, education, and technical service, a security firm that is aware of each institution’s specific needs is essential.  Security service should be tailored, not generic; it should respect and serve the differences that exist between industries.  First Security officers are adaptable to following areas:


  • Office Building, Construction Site and Warehouse Security:  To protect against vandalism, intrusions, and theft, many work sites need to be protected with 24 hour security.
  • Government and Corporate Services: Executive institutions need executive security measures.  Agencies in this field need to be ensured a level of confidentiality and professionalism. First Security is the first to rise to this challenge.
  • 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.


Banks, airports, and biotech labs are all high-risk institutions that can be found in cities near Monterey.  To protect against criminal activity leaking into the city a security service should be contacted.  For any of the services offered by First Security, 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.
