General Overview of Walnut Creek, California
Walnut Creek is certainly a very interesting city. Located in Contra Costa County in California, it’s a small, suburban city at a size of just 19.8 square miles with a population of 64,173. This is roughly half the size of the neighboring city of Concord. Furthermore, Walnut Creek is only 16 miles to the east of Oakland, serving as a refuge from the “big city feel” that some might be tired of. This is clearly represented in its population demographics, as it’s median age is 47.9 according to the 2010 United States Census and with 26.6% of its residents being 65 and older.
Originally, Walnut Creek was a sort of bedroom community, similar to Concord, but it has now developed to being an area with a thriving restaurant and retail economy, as well as being a major retirement destination in California. It’s also a city that serves as a travel hub due to its highway junctions from Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, and San Francisco. In addition, it’s also a city that’s known for its stunning hiking and outdoor spaces, notable for owning more open space per capita than any other city in California.
It is also ranked as the 20th highest income place in the U.S. with a population of at least 50,000, boasting a median household income of $83,419 with a population density of 3,200 people per square mile.
Despite being a wealthy city, Walnut Creek has a crime rate that is much higher than the national average. Its crime rate index is 18, making it safer than only 18% of the cities in the United States.
Even compared to other communities and cities of the same relative population, Walnut Creek has a much higher crime rate than average. Interestingly, the type of crime which is the highest in Walnut Creek, not to mention one of the highest in the United States as a whole, is in motor vehicle theft, with a 1 in 293 chance of having yours stolen.
Since the age of the population is a bit high, not to mention the high amount of retail and restaurant businesses in Walnut Creek, making sure that there is proper protection provided is important. First Security will be able to provide Walnut Creek security guards that can protect both private residencies and businesses through a host of different types of services.
Being such a small city, it takes a security company that has an understanding of its own uniqueness, culture, and intricacies to provide the protection that its residents desire. As a top 10 destination in the United States to retire according to CBS Money Watch and U.S. News (http://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/articles/2011/10/17/the-10-best-places-to-retire-in-2012), its residents need adequate protection that can help to balance out the high crime rate in the area.
