Our services include alarm monitoring, mobile patrol services and specialist onsite guard services and event security.

The establishment of the CITYGUARD Security name is the culmination many years business development, commencing in 2003 with Newmarket Security and its own unique flavour of Precinct Management, now glowing in operational success (lowest crime stats in 30 years and market dominance), to the distinctly Marine Operation of Viaduct Harbour Security, both operational brands exclusively servicing their own territories. CITYGUARD unites these two iconic Auckland territories, enabling our company to operate across the greater Auckland CBD, offering Rapid Response, Mobile Patrols and Specialised onsite Security Officers.

Our Difference: Precinct & Extra Services

The company’s unique approach to providing ‘precinct patrols’ over and above conventional commercial security services has created a strongly differentiated offering to communities, affinity groups and individual businesses. For example CITYGUARD provides patrol personnel who have gained qualifications in specialised maritime technical skills for its Viaduct & Westhaven Marina precinct services. In an industry typified by generic services and lowest common denominator standards, CITYGUARD provides tailored solutions and services as required; and operationally efficient, economically attractive single and multi-site commercial packages. The company’s services include:
  • Alarm system design & installation
  • Alarm system monitoring
  • Remote surveillance & monitoring
  • Activation call-out response
  • Mobile patrol services
  • Specialist on-site guard services A critical strength of CITYGUARD’s is its success in recruitment and staff development. Selecting high calibre employees and then empowering them to perform at an elevated level, remains a key benefit to the company’s guard clients and our patrols’ community partners.
