Static Security Services

Quite possibly the role of the static security guard is one of the most common the industry has to offer. Security guards are everywhere:

  • Schools and universities
  • Stores
  • Apartment buildings

If you take note, you really will see static security guards literally all over the place. The police can’t be everywhere, and that’s where static security services really comes into its own.

Crowd Control

There are always events of one kind or another happening in South-East Queensland, so there is plenty of work for crowd control security services. Whether it be music festivals, special occasions, private parties, government officials attending a summit, sporting events and more, crowd control requirements are commonplace, so you can always be assured of a steady stream of work opportunities.

VIP Security

This is more in the role of a bodyguard and requires the security officer to engage in a more personal role with those they are charged with protecting.

Would you like to be personally responsible for the next pop star or celebrity that comes to town? That’s the kind of role VIP security services are enlisted for; protecting famous people, and/or those who could come under threat for any number of reasons.
