The Patrol Invest Group, or "PIGs", are a security firm featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. They mainly operate as a legitimate security force, but are also involved in some illegal protection services. They patrol the North Point Mall area, Escobar International Airport, Leaf Links Country Club, and Starfish Island. Due to their North Point location, they are frequently in conflict with the Sharks; police act against both parties when gun battles occur.

The PIGs appear many times throughout the story of GTA Vice City. They provide protection for Congressman Alex Shrub and the band Love Fist, and have links to the Vice City Triads, providing protection for their illegal counterfeiting operation. At one point the PIGs attempt to move in on Tommy Vercetti's protection rackets in Ocean Beach; Tommy wipes out the guards involved, and destroys their office.

PIGs are not ordinarily hostile to Tommy, and will only attack in self-defense. They patrol Starfish Island, and may attack or be attacked by the Vercetti gang if they enter the grounds of Tommy's mansion.
