General Overview of Pescadero, California


Pescadero is located in San Mateo County, California and is a census-designated place, also known as a CDP. It’s close to State Route 1 and Pescadero State Beach, both of which are 2 miles to the west. In addition, Half Moon Bay is 14.4 miles to the north. It’s considered to be a farming and ranching community.


The population of Pescadero is only 643 people.


Its total area is 4.035 square miles, giving it a low population density of only 160 people per square mile. This is indicative of Pescadero’s rural nature and its farming and ranching characteristics.


Interestingly, despite being a rural community, Pescadero’s median age is just 33.5 years. Most areas that are similar to Pescadero have a much higher age.


In comparison, the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years, and the national median age is 37.2 years. Pescadero’s median age is almost identical with the state average and is 3.7 years below the national average.


32.5% of the population in Pescadero is at least 45 years old.


Pescadero itself can be traced back to the Rancho Pescadero Mexican land grant that Juan José Gonzalez acquired in 1833. However, Pescadero began to morph into what it is today thanks to Alexander Moore, an American who started living in Pescadero Valley in 1853.


Just one decade later in the 1960s, Pescadero began to grow considerably in its popularity, mostly due to the fertile soil in the valley that led to many settlers arriving.


Today, Pescadero has kept to its roots and is still mainly a farming and ranching community.


The median household income of Pescadero is $91,322, a very high number.


In contrast, the State of California has a median household income of $58,328, and the United States has a median household income of $53,046. Pescadero’s median household income is much higher than both of the above averages, and its residents are known for their hard work and simple lifestyles.


Pescadero is also a fairly safe place. It has a crime rate index of 58, meaning that it’s safer than 58% of the cities in the United States.




There is a 1 in 582 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Pescadero and a 1 in 58 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California has a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime. While Pescadero has a far lower violent crime rate than the state average, its property crime rate is much closer.

Pescadero Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services


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


  • Residential Security: The residents of Pescadero work hard and lead simple lives for the most part, despite having a high median household income. With that being said, because it’s a rural area, law enforcement can be slow to arrive, so it’s imperative that they have alarm systems installed in their homes, which First Security Services can provide. In addition, First Security can also provide patrol services, which would be ideal for a large ranch.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Pescadero may be small, but there is a nice selection of restaurants, bars, and cafes in the area. Some of the main ones are: Duarte’s Tavern, Acrangeli, Cascade Bar & Grill, and Highway 1 Brewing Company. Because of the limited selection of places in Pescadero, these places can get busy, and it’s important that there’s a certain level of security protection within them to prevent any incidents from happening. First Security Services has a considerable amount of experience in making sure that such establishments are well protected.
  • Points of Interest Security: For a tiny area, Pescadero sure has a lot of attractions and landmarks. Pescadero State Beach is one such attraction, featuring over one mile of shoreline and rocky cliffs. Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park is yet another attraction in Pescadero and is a glimpse back into Pescadero’s past. Ano Nuevo State Reserve is also a great place to visit and is a rocky, yet gorgeous beach. Finally, Butano State Park is also nearby and contains a plethora of majestic coastal redwoods.
  • Cannabis risk management


By hiring First Security, companies, organizations, and institutions, both of the private and public variety, will be able to ensure that they’re provided professional protection in regards to:


  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Intrusions
  • Employee Safety
  • Customer Safety
  • Violent Crimes


Residents in Pescadero should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe. In addition, a great service, especially given how small Pescadero is, would be to install alarm systems through First Security. By installing the alarm systems, you will have 24/7 monitoring and will have the authorities at your doorstep as fast as possible should any break-ins occur!


What makes First Security stand out is that every single First Security officer has been trained extensively on weaponry, restraining strategies, and combat PLUS the ability to peacefully resolve situations. First Security works with each and every company to find out their particular security needs and what they expect the service to entail, even as it pertains to the behavior of the First Security officers.
