General Overview of North Highlands, California

North Highlands, California is located in Sacramento County, California and is a census-designated place, which is also known as a CDP. It’s an extremely small area, as it totals only 8.8 square miles with a population of 42,694. This gives it a high population density of around 4,800  per square mile. It also should be noted that North Highlands has seen its population drop a bit, as in the U.S. Census from 2000 for example, it had a population of 44,187. With a median age of 32.1, it is also considered to be a young city.


Notable about North Highlands is that its median household income is far less than the State of California average of $58,328, since it’s $38,066. This looks better than what it was in 2000, which was $32,278.


This below average median household income corresponds with a crime rate that is extremely high in the area and quite troubling to be frank. Its crime rate index is 13, meaning that’s safer than only 13% of other cities in the United States. But the real picture is painted by its violent crime statistics.


There’s a 1 in 119 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in North Highlands, which is much higher than the 1 in 249 average in the State of California. Even property crimes have a higher average, with there being a 1 in 30 chance compared to the State of California’s 1 in 38 chance. The main area in the city where crime runs rampant is where Watt Avenue crosses with North Highlands. In this area, there are large pockets of prostitution and drug dealing that occurs on a daily basis. It is so common and frequent in this area that it is one of the highest in all of Sacramento.


Furthermore, adding to the troubles is that there is a growing gang presence in the area, evident by the increasing numbers of Crips and Nortenos.


Overall, North Highlands can be considered a residential area that is of a lower middle class. There are some industrial and commercial areas within it, namely around McClellan Business Park.


Given the large amount of violent crimes that occur here, and the large amount of private residents, as well as pockets of commercial properties, hiring security services is an absolute must for those in North Highlands.


To give yourself better piece of mind and to help protect yourself against any crimes, both of the violent and non-violent variety, you should consider hiring First Security as your first and only choice for any and all of your security needs, whether it’s for your own home or for your business.
