Newark Private Security Guards & Services

Welcome to Newark finest security guard service agency, First Security Services!


The 42,573 residents of Newark are confined to 14 square miles yet are exposed to criminal activity similar to that of a large city.  Currently Newark’s crime index is at 3.8% – this figure is not the worst that California has seen but it does leave room for improvement.  It may not be fully understood why Newark’s crime level is so much higher than other areas nearby but at any rate it should be taken care of.



First Security specializes in solutions that improve the safety of an institution or community.  Our security officers understand that one must analyse the dynamics of an area in order to eliminate hostility or concern by applying strong, stable security measures to that particular place.  The following are some of the areas that First Security’s solutions excel in:


Newark Retail and Residential Security Services

The statistics for Newark’s education system are contradictory: in one sense the Unified District School Board is the largest employer in the city and yet it is estimated that only 79% of high-school students are to graduate.  The reasoning for this is unclear although perhaps a stronger security presence in schools and campuses may shape a positive attitude towards learning so that this statistic may increase.  Many people in Newark move towards manufacturing or retail practices as their career of choice.  First Security offers the following services to accommodate each and every business:


  • 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.
  • Cannabis risk management
  • 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.
  • Special Events: Sporting games, work functions, bloc parties, conventions, concerts, and organized retreats all attract large groups of people in small, often enclosed, spaces.  A security presence is needed to prevent rowdiness and a loss of control.

Newark Institutional and Corporate Security Services

Cargill Salt is a large salt refinery that is located in Newark.  This factory is a common place for employment and is an important player for the city’s economy.  Other manufacturing and computer tech plants in the area need to be kept safe in order for production levels to remain sustainable.  The following services are offered by First Security to help keep things running:


  • 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.
  • 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.


Banks and airports are heavy targets for violent crime.  For this reason, 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.  Any service that First Security offers can be contracted with armed or unarmed security officers.
