Jefferson, TX Crime Analysis
Jefferson, TX has seen a slight population decrease over the past 30 years, dropping from approximate 2,250 residents in 1990 to 1,976 residents as of 2017.
Jefferson has an almost non-existent violent crime rate, at only 2 violent crimes on average each year. It’s hard to get much safer than that as far as murder, assault, and other violent crimes go.
The property crime rate in Jefferson is a little higher than the violent crime rate, with 22 property crimes each year. When factoring in the population of the area, the crime rate comes out to 11 incidents per 1,000 residents each year–which is less than half the Texas average (currently at approximately 27 property crimes per 1,000 residents each year).
Annual Violent Crimes: 2
Annual Property Crimes: 22
With numbers like these it’s easy to see why residents of Jefferson can breathe easy, knowing the risks of being a victim of a crime are quite low. However, Jefferson has a crime index rating of 57 out of 100, with 100 being the safest. This means that while Jefferson is safer than 57% of cities in the U.S., it’s less safe than 43%–so residents aren’t quite off the hook when it comes to protecting themselves and their family, properties, and businesses.
Lower-crime rate areas tend to have more slack security in general–it’s easy to get lulled into a false sense of security… “Crime is rare around here, so it won’t happen to me.” That’s a fairly safe assumption to make, until it’s too late. Installing a security system after your home has been broken into can help prevent future break-ins, but it won’t undo the physical damage, emotional wear, or loss incurred from the crime.
That’s why being proactive is never a bad thing–especially when it comes to protecting yourself, your family, your assets, your home, and your business or organization (if you run one).
Jefferson Residential & Home Security Systems
The average crime rates in Jefferson are much lower than the surrounding areas in East Texas, and safer than Texas averages across the board. Even so, as mentioned above, Jefferson is still less safe than 43% of cities in the country, so while the chances of being a victim are low, they aren’t non-existent.
The best defense against potential crime–such as burglary & theft or damage–targeted at your home is a reliable security system that you can count on day and night. Fortunately, a dependable security system doesn’t have to be expensive, and is low-hassle if you work with the right security company.
Not all security systems are made equally. Different options have different features, ranging from simple entry monitoring (opening doors and windows, broken windows, etc.) to more advanced options such as video monitoring, perimeter monitoring, biometrics, and more. Additionally, some systems are more reliable than others; the last thing you want is a system that throws false alarms or fails to sound when danger is present.
Choosing the right system and options for your home can be tough, but you don’t have to tackle the task by yourself. Enlisting the help of security experts can not only help ensure you choose the right technology, but that everything is implemented and operating correctly.

Jefferson Business Security Systems
Do you run a business or organization in Jefferson? If so, security your home isn’t the only thing you should be concerned with–even in low-crime areas, businesses of all kinds are a tempting target for criminals and bad actors. Whether you run a two-person office or a 20-person organization, a law firm, a dentist office, a bank, a school, or anything else, protecting your business, staff and employees, guests and clients, and assets should be of utmost importance.
Not all businesses and organizations have the same protection needs, so deciding what is best for your situation, needs, and budget can take some time and research. There’s a lot of features in modern business security systems that can help protect your premises, but some may be overkill depending on your needs. A simple door and window monitor may be sufficient, but if you have sensitive information, a lot of hard assets on site, secure areas with limited access, etc., you may need more advanced protection.
Some more advanced features can include perimeter monitoring, motion detection, CCTV and video recording/monitoring, access control, biometrics, and more. With so many brands, features, and options on the market it can be overwhelming trying to decide what matches your unique needs. Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone. Contact 3D Security, Inc. today to discuss your needs. We’d love to work with you to ensure your business is protected with the ideal security system based on your needs, goals, and budget.
