What is the difference? Security Guard vs. Security Professional

In the private security industry, there is a significant difference between a security guard and security professional. “You get what you pay for” is relevant to the New Zealand security industry.

Security guards in New Zealand are only required to complete basic mandatory training to obtain a certificate of approval (COA). Security professionals are extensively trained in every aspect of providing security, including executive care and close personal protection.

The range of specialised security, personal protection and risk management solutions delivered by the security professionals of The Neill Group (TNG) extend beyond a standard guarding or typical security guard service.

The Neill Group (TNG) engages true security professionals who are licensed by the Ministry of Justice and have a unique skill set and proven operational capabilities. Our security professionals are sourced exclusively from the defence forces and law enforcement sector.

When you need more than just a security guard or guarding service, Dion and his team of trusted associates have the skill set, professional training and operational experience to help.

Event and venue security

Event security is more than hiring security guards for an event. It requires a considered multi-layered approach to security planning and risk management to effectively safeguard guests, assets, and the venue. We provide every client with a highly visible or discreet security presence.

Executive care and personal protection 

Dion is one of only a few security professionals in New Zealand who specialise in providing executive care and close personal protection (commonly referred to as a bodyguard). Dion and his carefully selected team of security professionals have the capability of providing high-level security and protection services beyond the capability of a security guard.
