Crime in Bakersfield
Bakersfield experiences higher rates of both violent and property crime than most communities in the country, with an individual rate of 1 in 207. This number has been driven up in recent years by an increased prevalence of gang activity. This sort of crime is usually seen in downtown areas near the city center, off of major thoroughfares like Brundage Lane or Stine Road.
Property crimes such as burglary, larceny, vehicle theft, and arson are even more prevalent, with a 1 in 22 chance of being victimized. Bakersfield also has one of the highest rates of motor vehicle theft in the nation. The chance of getting your car stolen if you live in Bakersfield is one in 119. These statistics vary, with some neighborhoods like Maltha or Oil City experiencing relatively low levels of crime.
Meeting the Need for Security in Bakersfield
Our clients in Bakersfield rely on us for many types of security solutions. Bakersfield has a mix of blue-collar and white-collar jobs, making it a city of workers, salesmen, office employees, and professionals. One of the primary concerns that clients reach out to us with is securing the places where these employees work. Quite often this means providing armed or unarmed commercial and corporate security guards for office buildings, corporate offices, and other business facilities.
Another security issue we frequently help with is the protection of vehicular assets. Bakersfield is a large city with a sprawling system of highways, streets, and parking lots—but it’s also a city with very little public transportation infrastructure. This means everyone is driving their own car, and parking lots are full of vehicles—whether they belong to staff, customers, visitors, or the business itself. We frequently work with clients to install CCTV systems that can help monitor parking lots and protect vehicles and property within.
Crime Knows No Boundaries
Crime in Bakersfield is not limited to any one area, though it is concentrated in the city center. There is no hard border for crime, though, and CPS Security works with the area surrounding Bakersfield as well. We have clients from Taft to Arvin and all the way from Delano to Wofford Heights. Our local experience in Bakersfield helps us serve these suburbs and communities just as effectively as we can serve the city itself.
