As California’s third largest city, one would assume that San Jose is prone to criminal activity; however, one may be surprised to learn that the city only has an index of 2.6%, a figure which is 20% lower than state average.  Because the city’s 945,942 residents are stretched out over 174.9 square miles, the area ends-up having a manageable population density.  In saying this, over the last decade San Jose has undergone an intense process of urbanization that has created thriving business sectors and industrial empires. While these factors have helped to reduce unemployment rates, the city’s undercurrents still show unrest.

The cost of living in San Jose is much higher than the other cities nearby.  Similarly, property values have become quite steep in recent years.  While some households yield six-digit incomes, others find it difficult to afford the cost of living in San Jose. This dynamic in the community creates tension, even if it shouldn’t   First Security takes on the responsibility of making you feel safe in the following ways:


  • Campus and School Security: There are 12 notable universities in San Jose that have high enrollment numbers but low graduation rates.  This indicates a large presence of youth not being institutionalized.
  • 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 customers.  A security officer on premise helps to enforce restaurant policies in a friendly and welcoming manner.

  • 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 need to be ensured a level of confidentiality and professionalism. First Security is the first to rise to this challenge.
