In the 24th century ([[TNG]]-era), security equipment is similar: a communicator and a hand phaser.  Officers might also carry a tricorder programmed for security functions.  Phaser rifles of various types are available for overtly military missions.  The security uniform consists of a black-and-gold jumpsuit or black trousers and a black-and-gold shirt.  During the period of the TOS movie era Red Shirts are seen wearing helmets and a breastplate over their standard uniforms.  What protection these provide is unknown.
