In recent years the city of Oakland has suffered turbulent times: the property market bottomed out in 2008, annual income levels have decreased, and the crime index has settled at 5.757%.  Since 2008, Oakland’s property market has recovered while on the other hand household earnings have continued to drop.  This has made affordable living difficult for many residents.  In 2011 Oakland was reported to have 600 registered sex offenders, a marginal figure compared to the 390,724 total population of the city.  Although a concern, Oakland’s battle with crime is direr than a few hundred sex offenders – particular neighborhoods have become notorious for violence and property theft has escalated throughout the city.  These pockets for criminal activity scattered across Oakland have not only gotten worse, but they are beginning to disperse into other areas and small communities.   It may be time for residents and business owners to seek the help of a professional security company.

First Security has the resources to fortify any community or institution.  Our team of highly-trained officers are field ready and reliable.  Through the following services we believe we can make a difference:

Hire Oakland Personal, Retail and Residential Security Services

The criminal activity in Oakland may be attributed to the fact that it is one of the larger transportation hubs in California.  As a trade center, Oakland invites many outsiders into the community for business purposes.  This is one of those situations where perhaps business should not be mixed with personal interest.  Many residents are exposing their homes and families to strangers for the sake of a deal.  First Security understands what it takes for a business to be successful but we also understand how to make it a safer process:

  • 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 security

In regards to school security, Oakland may benefit from our company’s presence on campus grounds.  At the moment the graduation rate is 73%, a number that has room to go up under the right conditions.  First Security also works with organizations that are hosting special events.  Contact us if there is an event coming up that needs our expert services.

Oakland Institutional and Corporate Security Services

Oakland’s industrial efforts are focused on developing sustainable practices.  It is a common ambition for scientific research facilities in the city to work with renewable resources in effort to maximize the source’s efficiency.  Construction is also a large part of Oakland’s economy.  With this in mind First Security recommends the following services:

  • 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.
  • Bank and Airport Security:  Both of these institutions have very valuable assets that needed protecting.  The risk of violent crimes for banks and airports is much higher and must be anticipated.
  • 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.
