Shadowrun: Crime and politics
Not every corporate facility hosts top-secret research
requiring high-end protection, but they all require some
sort of security. The thin grey line gives them that. The
Seretech and Shiawase Decisions allow extraterritorial
corps to use deadly force in their own defense, but
most security guards aren’t armed to the teeth; it’s bad
PR. They’ve been trained and equipped just enough to
respond to basic threats and random street violence.
Their training also tells them to contain bigger threats
and take cover until reinforcements arrive.
