General Overview of Pittsburg, California

Pittsburg is a city that’s located in Contra Costa County, California. Considered an industrial city, it is a part of the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area.


The popularity of Pittsburg is 63,264, which is a decent amount higher than its population in 2000 of 56,769.


Pittsburg’s total area is 19.154 square miles, giving it a population density of 3,300 people per square mile. This is about average for a city of its size.


It’s also a pretty young city, with a median age of just 32.5 years. It’s much lower than the national average of 37.2 years and is about a year younger than the State of California’s average of 33.3 years.


32.8% of the population is at least 45 years old.


Pittsburg can trace its roots back to 1849. It was then that Colonel Jonathan D. Stevenson, who was based out of New York, purchased the Rancho Los Medanos land grant. He originally wanted to call it “New York of the Pacific.” Just one year later, this proved to be unsuccessful.


Fortunes changed though soon after, as coal was discovered in Nortonville, which was located close by. This made the area into a port for coaling, leading to present-day Pittsburg being called “Black Diamond.” This was the name of the Black Diamond Coal Mining Railroad.


The industrial prospects of the area continued to improve and by 1911, its name was changed to Pittsburg. This name was purposely chosen to be similar to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania due to the similar steel industries that both had.


The City of Pittsburg remains extremely viable today and continues to grow.


Pittsburg’s median household income is estimated as being $65,411. The State of California’s median household income is $58,328 and the national average is $53,046 for comparison, so Pittsburg does have a higher median household income than both.


For a working-class, industrial city, Pittsburg’s crime rate is actually better than one would think. It has a crime rate index of 33, meaning that it’s safer than 33% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 359 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 33 chance of being a victim of a property crime in Pittsburg.


In the State of California, there’s 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. Pittsburg has a much better violent crime rate but property crimes are more in line with the state average.


First Security understands the security needs of Pittsburg and Contra Costa County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Pittsburg Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

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


  • Residential Security: Pittsburg is a working class city, but its industrial heyday is long gone, as it has switched to other industries like most of California. Its location in the East Bay means that many of its residents commute to other cities such as San Francisco and San Jose. Its property crime rates are much worse than their violent crime rates, so residents will need to make sure that their homes are protected at all times. First Security Services offers both neighborhood patrol services and advanced alarm systems.
  • 420 security: cannabis security plans
  • Food & Beverage Security: Pittsburg is revamping its waterfront downtown area, and already there has been various new places popping up. Some of the popular places in Pittsburg are Blue Saigon Fusion Grill, E J Phair Brewing Company, and Rossi’s Cafe and Deli. These places get quite busy during peak hours, and First Security Services can make sure that they’re secure at all times.
  • Points of Interest Security: The downtown area and the waterfront are both being developed in Pittsburg. The city is slowly becoming more “green” and there is a movement to create more parks. Many of the residents choose to go to some of the other nearby cities though for their entertainment. The Steelworker in Pittsburg Sculpture and Marker attracts some tourists, as it focuses on the history of steel making in the city.


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 Pittsburg 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 Pittsburg  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.
