Known for its breezy summers and iconic city-structures, San Francisco has become one of the top destinations for tourism in the world.  People come to embrace the city’s cultural diversity and contemporary embellishments from all over making tourism San Francisco’s largest private-sector employer.  Even with Alcatraz off the coast of the main city, criminals of San Francisco are not deterred – it seems that the city is plagued with a higher than average index of 4.65%.  To pinpoint reasoning for crime is always difficult in a tourism-based city, but one way in which the city protects its own local corporations is through their consolidated city-county government; this status allows the local government to have jurisdiction over property that otherwise would be uncontrollable.  The government structure in San Francisco does helps to regulate the economy however managing crime in the city should be left up to the professionals.



First Security has been the number one security provider in North California for many years.  See what our company can offer San Francisco:

Of the 805,235 people that live in San Francisco, it may be surprising to learn that only 81% are high-school graduates.  Since the city is in need of highly specialized and skilled workers, a university education is encouraged.  In saying this, the city already has a high population density of 17,245 people per square mile and placing large campuses in the city only aggravates this statistic.  Just the same for major residential neighborhoods  it is important to have a strong sense of security in any community to protect against crime.  Here are some of the services we offer small business in residential areas:


  • 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.

San Francisco Institutional and Corporate Security Services

In North California, San Francisco is the leading financial and cultural center.  The city’s industries are dependent on the biotechnological and bio medical research that specific institutes release.  As there are many government institutes present in San Francisco, the city is also considered a principle banking and financing community for the West Coast.  There are many high-risk institutions to protect in the area that should consider 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.  Agencies in this field need to ensure a level of confidentiality and professionalism. First Security is the first to rise to this challenge.
  • Bank and Airport Security:  San Francisco’s international airports and national banking headquarters need protection.  The premises of these locations are always under threat of violent crime and need superb security services to prevent as much from happening.
  • 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.
