We were selected as the security provider for the world premier of "Lord of the Rings : Return of the King" and "King Kong", held at the Embassey Theatre, Courtney Place, Wellington, New Zealand.


Our clients include such notables as Sir Elton John, during his 'Face Off' tour, Joe Satriani during his performances at the 'Mountain Rock' festivals, and a number of movie stars during the 'King Kong' movie premiere in Wellington.

We also provide personal security for a number of high-profile Australian businessmen when they visit in the lower North Island, as well as domestic Corporate businessmen in and around the Wellington area.


We provided security for the Wellington Town Hall, Sir Michael Fowler Centre & Wellington Events Centre for four years, including private meetings, corporate events, product promotions, concerts, and special events.

We can provide a unique team to perform front door metal detector searches, perimeter checks, door security, front of house security, pit security & safety, crowd control & management.

The annual 'Rockquest' events see us providing security for the performances from New Plymouth to Gisborne, and down to Nelson, ensuring everyone is having an enjoyable and safe time.

In 1994, we were contracted to supply security for the 'Mountain Rock' outdoor festival. As well as perimeter security over the two day event, we assisted with stage security and supplied personal protection for VIPs such as Joe Satriani.


We were contracted to assemble, train & provide a unique team for the Palmerston North City Council's 'Safe City Host' programme. We were involved right from its inception in 1997, through to 2000.
