Gruppe Sechs provides private security services and offers failed cops a second chance to enforce the law on their own terms.
— Description at

Gruppe Sechs (also written as gruppe 6) is a private security company featured in the Grand Theft Auto franchise since Grand Theft Auto III, with the exception of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto Advance and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. The player can buy stocks from them on the website in Grand Theft Auto V.


Gruppe Sechs is based on the British security company G4S (formerly Group 4 Securicor). The former name of the Stockade, Securicar, is also a reference to this.

Since Grand Theft Auto IV, the company's logo reads as "Gruppe 6", although "Gruppe Sechs" is still written in smaller print on the company's vehicles.

As indicated by markings on the Stockade, Gruppe Sechs have a partnership with the Bank of Liberty, and is "licensed and authorized" to use deadly force. However, their guards do not use deadly force and do not become hostile to the player in Grand Theft Auto IV. In Grand Theft Auto V, their guards will open fire on the player if they attack one of their vehicles.

3D Universe

Gruppe Sechs guards do not appear in any 3D Universe games, as the Securicars are normally driven by generic pedestrians.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Guards do not appear in Grand Theft Auto IV either, with Stockades driven by civilians and no deadly force is used if their vehicles are stolen. However, the LCPD will pursue the player if they destroy the vehicle with a weapon.

Gruppe Sechs guards exist in the game, but they are only used in the multiplayer mode Bomb Da Base II.

Grand Theft Auto V

Gruppe Sechs guards appear in regular gameplay in Grand Theft Auto V, this time appearing driving Stockades and attempting to protect the vehicle from thieves. The company is more prominent in the game as they provide security on at several locations (such as gas stations, Lester's House and the De Santa Residence) and security cameras with the Gruppe Sechs logo can be seen on various buildings. During certain missions, Gruppe Sechs guards can be seen outside of the Union Depository. If the player chooses the Subtle Approach for The Big Score, the heist crew will hijack two Gruppe Sechs Stockades and infiltrate the building in order to steal four tons of gold. Several other security guards wearing clothing featuring the Gruppe Sechs logo can be found around the map.

Grand Theft Auto Online

After the Duggans took control of The Diamond Casino & Resort in 2019, Gruppe Sechs was hired to help deliver casino chips to the vault. If the player chooses the The Big Con approach for the Casino Heist, they have the option to steal a Gruppe Sechs stockade along with uniforms, that can be used as a disguise for the heist. After completing the finale with the Gruppe Sechs disguise, the uniforms will be available for purchase at stores.


In Grand Theft Auto IV, Gruppe Sechs personnel wear a green shirt with the Gruppe Sechs logo embroidered onto the right sleeve while the U.S. flag is on the left sleeve. They wear a bulletproof vest accompanied with a radio and a belt, which includes a weapon holster. They wear dark green trousers with a green stripe down the side and black shoes.

In Grand Theft Auto V, there are two types of uniform for Gruppe Sechs employees:

  • Security guards, as seen in places such as the Richards Majestic, wear a white shirt with green trousers accompanied with a radio and a belt, which includes a weapon holster, black shoes and a tan cap carrying the Gruppe Sechs logo.
  • Drivers wear the same uniform as in GTA IV, but they now wear black trousers with a different stripe down the side. They carry ID cards on their belts and wear black helmets with the visor open.

  • Upon completion of Fresh Meat, Gruppe Sechs stock will rise by approximately 11.17%. The reason for this is not clear, but players can secure a sizable profit by loading up on this stock prior to starting the mission. However the stock value of Merryweather Security, its chief competitor, does not appear to be affected.
  • Upon completing The Third Way, Gruppe Sechs stock will rise again, this time for an approximate 10.8% return on investment.



  • "Gruppe Sechs" is German for "Group Six" but is more likely a play on "group sex", another of Rockstar's sexual jokes.
  • The slogan appears to sound similar to the expression "Putting you insecure". This is further implied by the 6 in the logo resembling an open padlock.

Grand Theft Auto V

  • There is a Gruppe Sechs padlock in a container in Fort Zancudo.
  • The Gruppe Sechs drivers' uniform appears in both Michael and Trevor's wardrobes following completion of The Big Score, regardless of which approach is chosen.
  • In Grand Theft Auto V, Gruppe 6 security guards are unique from other NPCs in that they can survive headshots from weaker weapons such as the Pistol.
  • If one looks closely at the cameras' sides in Prologue, they can see it is made by Gruppe Sechs.
    • The cameras on Lester's house also have the Gruppe Sechs logo on the side.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • If the player calls Merryweather for Air Support, Gruppe Sechs men will arrive in an unarmed Buzzard.
  • During Heist Prep: Riot Control Van, Gruppe Sechs guards are seen operating the RCV that the players must steal, implying that in 2017, the LSPD likely contracted Gruppe Sechs to handle any riot situations.
  • If the player purchases the security room upgrade for their Facility, the metal detector that is installed will have Gruppe Sechs logos on it.
