Pittsburg, TX Crime Statistics
Pittsburg, Texas, known as the former home of the poultry producer Pilgrim’s, has had a fairly stable population in the 4,000s range over the past 30 years or so – currently at approximately 4,651 residents.
Pittsburg, unlike many of the other areas we serve, has a moderately low crime rate, with numbers on par with Texas averages (many cities in the East Texas region have crime rates that can be significantly higher than state averages). There are only about 150 crimes in the area each year, which breaks down to:
Annual Violent Crimes: 25
Annual Property Crimes: 127
With a population nearing 5,000, that’s a fairly respectable number–putting the property crime rate at 26.98 per 1000 residents, which is marginally lower than the Texas average at 27.6 per 1000. There is a significant higher amount of crimes per square mile vs the Texas average, at 45/sq. mile vs 30/sq. mile, but that’s due to the fact that Texas is massive, and residents & towns are fairly spread out across the state.
The crime index for the area is 16 out of 100, with 100 being the safest. This means that 84 percent of cities in the U.S. are safer to live in, which isn’t all that reassuring, but it IS significantly higher than quite a few other areas in East Texas (where the crime index can be in the low single digits.
So, while you *could* live in areas with higher crime rates in the area, you could do worse (safety-wise) than living in Pittsburg. With that said, however, having a reliable security alarm system for your home and/or business to keep yourself, family, and property safe.

Pittsburg Business Security Systems
If you run a business or organization in Pittsburg, ensuring it (including the premises, on-location assets, employees & staff, etc.) is protected should be high on your list of priorities. Losses to your business due to bad actors can result in increased expenses, lost time and revenue, decreased morale and a lower sense of safety company-wide, and a variety of other issues.
Businesses can be a prime target for thieves–many organizations have cash, computers, and other valuable assets on-site that are ripe for the taking if not properly secured. And because many businesses are open to the public, any criminal can walk in to “do business,” while casing the place to see what kind of security measures are in place before planning on making their move.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to effectively protecting a business or organization. The technology and tools implemented can vary based on needs. For many small and mid-size businesses, simple monitoring systems are generally adequate. For businesses with more sensitive data, more valuable assets and/or cash on-site, or organizations with a lot of people on the premises (schools, hospitals and medical offices, etc.), higher levels of security may be more appropriate.
Some options include CCTV (video) monitoring, access control, perimeter monitoring, and more. It can be daunting trying to determine what technology you need to effectively protect your business or organization, but consulting with security experts can help you make the right choices based on your needs, budget, and goals.
