PRICING FOR SECURITY GUARD SERVICES IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

In this article we will cover pricing for:

 

MOBILE SECURITY PATROL PRICES IN THE BAY AREA

Currently, as of 2019, the price of a typical Mobile Patrol Service here in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland, San Jose, Fremont, San Mateo, Santa Rosa, etc. range from $12-$17 a "Patrol Hit" or for a "Flat Monthly Fee". Expect a monthly Gas and Vehicle Maintenance Allowance to be included as an extra service fee as well. You can expect to see those prices as an additional $800-$1200 per month.

There are also varying factors that can affect the price as well such as, high crime areas, time of day, geographical patrol route, amount of patrols needed, time spent at each site, duties of the officer, etc. It really all depends on what needs to be protected, the city where the property exists, the time of day, etc. For example; The Nightly Mobile Patrol of an elementary school in Santa Rosa would most likely be way cheaper in cost compared to the Mobile Patrol of an antique storage warehouse in Oakland.

 

ARMED SECURITY GUARD PRICES IN THE BAY AREA

Expect to pay a premium for this type of service because Armed Security Guards are required by law to go through more training and licensing to obtain a Firearm Permit. Companies generally require the Guards to be more experienced as well with many years of previous Security related experience on their resume.

Armed Security Guards also get paid quite a bit more than an Unarmed Guard, and Security Companies pay a hefty insurance premium to insure them as well. Many other factors play into the Pricing for an Armed Security Guard such as what is being protected, the city where the service is located in, the time of day, the duties of the Armed Security Officer, the cost of living index, and whether or not the location of service is in a high crime area. So all of these elements translate into a premium price to the Client.

As of current 2019, in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can expect to receive an Armed Security Quote ranging anywhere from $35-$55 per hour. Even though Armed Security Guards get paid substantially more than Unarmed Guards, as each City's minimum wage increases through the years and the cost of living index increases, only expect to see Armed Security Prices steadily increase through the next coming years.

 

UNARMED SECURITY GUARD PRICES IN THE BAY AREA

This is one of the most commonly requested types of Security Guard Service because it's much more affordable, the Guards are plentiful, and most of the time Clients just don't feel the need for Armed Security Services; so they think.

Many other factors play into the Pricing for an Unarmed Security Guard Service such as what is being protected, the city where the service is located in, the time of day, the duties of the Unarmed Security Officer, the cost of living index, and whether or not the location of service is in a high crime area.

As of current 2019, in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can expect to receive an Unarmed Security Quote ranging anywhere from $25-$35 per hour. Unarmed Security Guards generally get paid anywhere from minimum wage and on up.

Cities such as San Francisco and Oakland have currently passed measures that allow for yearly minimum wage increases of up to $1 per year over the next 5 years. so as each City's minimum wage increases, don't be surprised to see Prices for Unarmed Security Services steadily increase through the next coming years.

Finally, As a word of wisdom, don't just assume that you only need Unarmed Security Service. Consult with the Security Company you've chosen and listen careful to their opinion. There is something to say about years of experience when it comes to a particular field, and they will know best how to protect you, your property, your employees, and customers.

 

OTHER SECURITY SERVICE PRICES TO CONSIDER

Other than the Security Services mentioned above, there are a few more to consider when Pricing for a Security Guard Service such as:

  • Special Event Security Officers: Prices range from $35-$50 per hour. Expect to see the higher end wherever alcohol is being served.

  • Bouncers for Nightclubs and Bars: Prices range from $40-$60 per hour. Expect to see the higher end wherever alcohol is being served.

  • Surveillance and Plain Clothes Officers: Prices range from $40-$60 per hour.

  • Off-Duty Police Officers: Prices range from $75-$100 per hour. Generally off-duty Police Officers won't work for Security Companies unless they are at least getting paid what they get for overtime pay at their regular Police jobs. The risk vs. reward is just not there for them otherwise. They are pretty expensive to hire.

  • Executive Protection Agents: Yes, they are the cream of the crop and the highly sought after service for Musical Celebrities, Government Officials, Actors, and VIP's.There is no general set price range when it comes to this type of service because there are way too many factors needed to establish what it would cost to protect a high profile individual. However, you may expect to see prices ranging anywhere from $80-$100 per hour for the CEO of a bank, $150-$300 per hour to protect someone like Justin Bieber, and $500+ per hour to protect the President or Dignitary of a foreign country.
