  Founded in 2001 by an Air Force Officer,  Core Group Security Consultants is owned by Anthony "Tony" Jones, a former member of U.S. Special Operations, Electronic Warfare Officer, Intelligence Operator and Personnel Recovery Specialist.  Core Group Security is a Private Investigation firm, an Executive Protection and training company.  We conduct investigations, surveillance, counter-eavesdropping, executive protection and training on an on-going basis. 


We have been operating for over 10 years in Las Vegas and have trained thousands of U.S. personnel and first responders in Surveillance, Personal Protection, Executive Protection, Survival and Counter Terrorism techniques. During Iraqi Freedom, he was the Director of the Personnel Recovery Cell and responsible for Personnel Recovery throughout the theater.


After 9/11, Tony started Core Group and also deployed to Iraq. He was also the former Director of Training of Crisis Response Int. (CRI). Our Canadian partner is Keeghan Wilson.

Our instructors bring together a mix of real world combat proven tactics, providing a training methodology of problem solving and skill building techniques that constantly challenge and emphasize the perfect execution of basic fundamentals done under stress.

These courses are completed here in Las Vegas, but can be taken on the road and brought directly to you.

Covert Surveillance Operator: (6 days) The "Art of War" by Sun Tzu, Section 13, The Use of Spies... "what enables the wise and sovereign and the good general to strike and conquer, and achieve things beyond the reach of ordinary men, is Foreknowledge." Surveillance has been used as a vigorous tool for centuries and even to this day forms an integral aspect of the security and intelligence market. 


Surveillance has become a fast emergent part of the Private Security Industry and we provide the skill sets to recognize and identify surveillance operations and personnel. This course covers the basic to advanced protocols necessary for gathering evidence and intelligence by covert means. We provide realistic scenario training where students work as part of a team in a high pressure practical surveillance environment where split second decisions regularly need to be made.  



Modular Equipment Applications Development, (MEAD - CANADA ): (3 Days) The core of this course is to help you choose and use proper tactical equipment and gear, as well as to understand the design of specific pieces of equipment. Understanding equipment design will teach you how to utilize it to maximize your firearm training and development. Based on extensive research of lessons learned events, the course provides the student with hands on training to manage these situations. We prepare you for the reality that you and your gear may be the difference between life and death.
