A 24th century security team

A security team, also known as a security detail, security detachment, security squad, or armed detail, was a squad of security personnel. They are usually assigned aboard major Starfleet starships, and carry weapons such as phase-pistols or phasers. Security team assignments included: guard duty, responding to and neutralizing threats to ship's security, and security or search operations on planetary surfaces and other off-ship locations.

In the 22nd century, some United Earth starships had a team of MACOs aboard which would perform security duties. (ENT: "The Xindi", "North Star", "Harbinger")
