I'd take Oakland over Richmond any day of the week.

Richmond has gotten better with the downtown revamp but there are still neighborhoods that id be afraid of after dark

Ever thought about working for an Armored Truck company such as Loomis, Dunbar, Brinks or Garda? They all pay well, garunteed FT/PT hours and its a respectable job.

Plus I know Garda, Dunbar and Brinks buy you a vest, supply you a gun (if you didn't have one), and will most of the time pay for your state licensing fees and testing. I know when I was at Garda we had a range we used, and they had a private range master come and test us while we were on the clock. Might be something you'd be interested in, if not it's my 2 cents on the matter.

Here is the latest list of the ten most dangerous cities in the US. Both Richmond and Oakland rate more dangerous than Compton. We should be so proud, California holds three of the top ten spots.

The cities, listed from number ten to number one (one being the "worst"), are:

10. Birmingham, Alabama

9. Gary, Indiana

8. Compton, Calif.

7. Cleveland, Ohio

6. Richmond, Calif.

5. Oakland, Calif.

4. Flint, Michigan

3. Detroit, Michigan

2. Camden, New Jersey

1. St. Louis, Missouri

also known as Global Force International (GFI). I do NOT recommend working for them as they don't pay you until you worked 45 days. I worked for that company and it was very unorganized. Plus, their patrol sites are West Oakland (Acorn) and Richmond with horrible management staff that rarely aside with Security to help evict the "people" that live there.

OP, start checking the security ads on craigslist. Most armed positions seem to start off at 13-15 per hour.
