First Security Services can help to make sure that every one of these businesses has the necessary amount of security put in place, both during work hours and after hours.
  • Cannabis security
  • Points of Interest Security: While many people have come to the area to get a glimpse at Facebook’s headquarters, there are plenty of other things to do. Nak’s Oriental Marke is a mom and pop Asian market that features plenty of authentic ingredients. Bayfront Park is one of the best places to go hiking in the entire area. Plus, the Silicon Valley Film Festival and the Palo Alto International Film Festival take place every year.
