Why Your Business Needs Private Security in Sacramento

The violent crime rate in Sacramento is nearly double the U.S. rate. The number of violent crimes in Sacramento is 716 per 100,000 people, far ahead of the national average of 386 per 100,000.

With the overall crime rate 32% higher than the national average, with nearly 10 daily crimes occurring in the city, both individuals and businesses need to take the right steps to protect themselves from potential threats.

Our Security Guards Understand Their Legal Powers and Can Protect Your Business

Each of our security guards is thoroughly trained and understands the legal powers they can use to protect your business from criminals.


First Security Services ensures that all of our security professionals are licensed, understand the regulations as outlined by both Sacramento and the State of California, and have the necessary training to handle even the toughest situations.


Here’s what your security professional can do:


  • Enforce the rules you have set for your property. Your security professional will uphold any lawful rules you have established for your property.
  • Use reasonable force. Our security guards are trained to respond to potential threats using reasonable force. Using trained guards that understand how and when to use force will reduce your lability.
  • Detain and arrest criminals. Security guards are allowed to detain an individual that has committed a crime by making a citizen’s arrest. Our professionals are capable of making arrests and will always alert the police in the event that one is made.

Why Alarms Aren’t Good Enough for Your Business

Alarms are useful tools for alerting you to potential threats, but they aren’t perfect. 

Think about it like this:

  • It takes several minutes for an alarm company to confirm the legitimacy of a threat (3-5 minutes).
  • A security professional must travel to your location (10-15 minutes).
  • Whatever threats was on your property may have escaped by that point.

Your safety depends on your security company verifying the threat and arriving in good time. That’s exactly what we do here at First Security Services. We treat every threat seriously because we know how valuable each minute is.

Private Security Is An Investment Worth Making

Private security isn’t an expense, it’s an investment in your business and its assets. A security company helps your business:

  • Protect its valuable property, equipment, and other business functions.
  • Eliminate the need for time-consuming insurance claims.
  • Reduce exposure to potential liabilities.
  • Maintain confidence knowing that your business is protected.
