>(>)Heres a little download from the Yoshida's database for the new
>edition of the Seattle Guidebook. It details a newish player in the
>security business that has recently grown enough to gain the
>attentions of various larger security providers. Hope it comes in
>(>) DdoubleO IT
>Harryngtons Security Services
>The company was formed in late 2049 as a private security concern by
>HN Wilson, an expatriate of British descent. Parlaying some solid
>contacts among the upper crust of Seattle into profitable security
>contracts, the company has grown to become one of the most respected
>providers of security to the city's elite.
>The victim of an aggresive takeover bid in early 2057, the company
>forced into the international limelight when the tactics of the
>potential takeover bidders were revealed by Harlon Jacobs of WPKR
>television. Since that time the company has actually benefitted from
>the publicity. Several embassies in the Bellevue area have recently
>contracted the company for their needs.
>The company is controlled by the Executive Consultant HN Wilson,
>to all many friends as Neville. A greying 50 year old, the ExecCon
>an uncanny knack with people and is on many an exclusive party's
>A South African expatriot runs the Operations Division, the heart of
>the company. Ex SAPS Colonel Peter Bezuidenhout is tough and battle
>hardened. He drills the troops personally and stays involved in the
>day to day running of his division.
>"Jimmy" James Fields is the Financial Director, a fun loving playboy
>whose excesses have landed him in hot water on more than a few
>occasions. He has a good head for figures and is meticulous and
>reliable in his position. The organiser of the company's highly
>succesful Embassy Challenge Golf Day.
>The company is divided into three seperate Divisions. Management,
>Financial and Operations.
>Management takes care of client relations, the pursuit of new
>public image and overall control of the business. Mrs Paula Wilson,
>wife of the ExecCon controls this Division.
>Financial. Jimmy James is responsible for control of the company's
>banking and investment portfolios. The division also carefully
>monitors the ever-changing situation on the streets and is the home
>IntelOps, the company's intelligence gathering
>sub-division. II uses a lot deckers and spares no expense in
>establishing the threat to their clients lives and properties.
>Operations takes care of posting physical guards to client sites,
>ensuring that they are trained, equipped and briefed so that they can
>fulfil their duties. This Division controls the fleet and the airwing
>as well as the Magical Operations sub-division.
>Mrs Wilson holds 44%
>Mr JJ Fields holds 18%
>Mr PC Kaufmann holds 38%
>(>) The reason that MR Wilson does not own stock is yet to be
>established, but I'll bet it has something to do with a little dust
>he had with His Majesty's Tax Revenue Office back in '32
>(>) Other word on the man is that he is one of the recently
>"social adepts". According to some wiz jetwash I had the displeasure
>of being subjected to recently, this i a new form of physical adept.
>doubt it. Anyone had a chance to assense the man?
>(>) Bellevue Eagle
>Harryngtons post physical, magical and electronic security guards to
>all the client sites depending on the level of threat that is
>perceived. The company has an expert surveying and troubleshhoting
>squad that perform this function as well as constant testing of the
>security measures in place.
>(>) I've heard the Operations guys hire shadowrunners to try and beat
>While the staff on-site are considered the front line against
>breaches, the company's true attitude is revealed by the response
>teams fielded. These teams utilise land, air and water transport in
>reacting to a threat. Most officers are ex military or security
>personnel from well respected agencies.
>(>) The recent defection of Brian Lascaris from KE's MagSec division
>to Harryngtons caused quite a stir.
>The company is also very active in the security consultancy business.
>Several lucrative subcontracting deals with the installers of
>electronic security measures have ensured a healthy cash flow
>The officers on duty are all highly trained and well renumerated.
>are trained in foreign languages and etiquette, unarmed combat,
>non-lethal response and pistols. Security sergeants are trained in
>of the above as well as rudimentary electronics and communications as
>well as demolitions and and basic magical theory.
>Response officers are recruited from the best of the front-line
>They are trained in all of the skills needed by posted officers as
>well as piloting, rifles and small unit tactics. Response officers
>equippped with cyberware and state of the art weapons in order to
>optimise the threat response in dealing with siuations
>The ExecCon also trains and mentors his PR managerial staff. Chosen
>straight from college and relentlessly drilled in dealing with
>and socialising, these PR managers keep the company in the spotlight,
>attending functions and making new deals.
>(>) These guys are more of the "social adepts" Bellvue Eagle was
>A rigid sense of discipline and unfailing politeness and competence
>are the hallmarks of this company's staff.
>The company employs
>2 Divisonal Managers (Operations and Finances)
>4 Sub-divisional Managers (Magic Ops, Response, Intel Ops and
>7 Assistant Managers (One each to the above)
>4 PR Managers
>18 Administration staff
>190 Security Officers (incl. 20 sergeants)

>8 Training Officers.
>The fleet consists of
>4 Northrup Yellwjacket F variant helicopters
>2 Ares Dragon Helicopters
>12 Chrysler-Nissan Patrol cars
>2 Ares CityMaster RCV
>6 Harley Scorpion patrol bikes
>The HQ is situated just across the I405 from Bellvue proper, almost
>smack in the middle of the Bellvue area.
>The area is half a block in extent and boasts a roof helipad for the
>company's aerial fleet. There are parade grounds, a motor pool and an
>underground armoury and shooting range as well as the usual
>of offices and boardrooms. Security around the HQ itself is tight and
>the compound has been used to secure important visitors to the city.
>(>) The company's host has been estimated at Orange-8. Good luck.
