'''Gruppe Sechs''' (or '''Gruppe 6''') is a security company featured in the Grand Theft Auto franchise since [[Grand Theft Auto III]] to [[Grand Theft Auto V]], with an exception being [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]].

==Overview==
   
The "Gruppe Sechs" name (German for "Group Six") is a pun on both the infamous European security company [[wp:G4S|Group 4]], and the phrase "''group sex''". In GTA IV, the company's written logo is changed to "Gruppe 6", although this would still translate to "Gruppe Sechs" in German, and the company's vehicles still feature "Gruppe Sechs" in much smaller print on various surfaces. The name of the van, Securicar, seems to also serve as parody to Group 4 since they were formally known as Group 4 Securicor. Despite those references, the company can be seen as the equivalent to American security companies such as [[wp:Brinks|Brinks]] based on their very similar vans in GTA IV.
