Posted on 09/28/2009 11:51:20 PM PDT by ebiskit
BILLINGS - American Police Force officials showed up in Mercedes SUV's that had "Hardin Police" stenciled on the vehicles. The twist, the city of Hardin doesn't have a police department. Two Rivers Authority officials say having APF patrol the streets was never part of their agenda. "I have no idea. I really don't because that's not been a part of any of the discussions we've had with any of them," said Two Rivers Authority's Al Peterson. As it stands now the Big Horn County Sheriff's Department is contracted to patrol the city and APF has no jurisdiction. If that was changed Peterson says it would have to go through the city council. As for the jail contract with APF, both sides are yet to agree to a deal as bondholders rejected it again on Thursday morning. "It's a complicated issue there are a lot of tax laws to work through we were hoping to get it by Tuesday night now we're hoping to get it by Friday night," said Peterson. Officials say the contract only deals with the detention facility and a police training center. There's no mention of a homeless shelter, animal shelter, or any services for the area. "That was never in the contract to begin with. I think it was on a wish list of what Captain Michael wanted to do here," said Peterson. American Police Force officials plan to stay in the area for the next month.

Montana Town Taken Over By National Civilian Security Force Link description
City of Hardin & surrounding area is now becoming a police state!
APF scrod up.
Has anybody ever asked and got an answer from the president what he meant about a national security force as strong as the military? Or should we add that to the list of unmentionables?
This is not the change real citizens expected.
Supposedly they are a recycler of ex-cops.
Something’s not right here... this “APF” is awful flashy for a genuine contracting outfit. Their website (registered thru a proxy, btw) is full of spelling and grammar errors, and plastered with stock photo imagery. And why are they wearing the arms of the Kingdom of Serbia?
Is this some sort of viral marketing for an upcoming movie?
Strange things are certainly afoot at the Circle-K
Life stranger than fiction.
As for the typogaffes...
I saw an ad the other day from a prestigious laboratory looking for applicants with doctoral degrees for “advance” [sic] research. I guess they did not have “advance” proof reading for their ad.
I can’t find anything on the net about this,,,
Maybe consider posting this on the Montana Freeper page see if anyone is close enough to verify. Just a thought
An earlier report simply said they had stuck the “official” logos on their cars, and then took them off at the city’s insistence. What this says to me is some way over eager yokel doing the hard hard sell. It is not time for tin foil.
Could this have something to do with Montana’s recent 10th Amendment push-back & the nose-thumbing they gave the BATFE with the recently passed legislation that expressed Montana’s 2nd Amendment preeminence?
Let the Reynolds company keep their aluminum.
Mont. jail contract worth $2.6M a yearAnd again -- what the connection with the royal house of Serbia? If this is for real, it's mighty strange. Anybody in Santa Ana care to visit the company headquarters (1202 East 17th Street, Suite 200, Santa Ana, CA 92701) and check it out?

BILLINGS, MONT. An obscure California security company was planning a jobs fair next week as it prepared to pay $2.6 million annually to take over a rural Montana jail that the company plans to expand into a military and police training center.
Some of those activities could involve training military and police from overseas including Afghanistan to run detention centers and provide security in their home countries, said company representatives and an official in Hardin, the city that built the $27 million jail.
Skepticism lingered because of a refusal by the company, Santa Ana, Calif.-based American Police Force, to say where it would get $30 million it says it will invest in the project.
It's also unclear where the prisoners and trainees would come from.... [Moar]
Their office appears to be mail drop in a good neighborhood of DC.
1701 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Suite 300 is suspiciously crowded.
Among the tenants sharing suite 300 with American Police Force are
Phase Legal, LLC
Uyghur American Association/Uyghur Human Rights Project
The Event Planning Group LLC
Rhodes & Weinstock, LLC
National Abstinence Education Association
Palisades Capital Advisors
Matthew T. Famiglietti, Esq.
It’s a “virtual office.”
Not a very impressive headquarters.
Their west coast headquarters is in a low-rent office building next to a strip mall.
It sounds like some sort of scam.
If so the city better beware
Been watching this on the local and state news...
I’m a couple towns away. Seems harmless.
LOL,,, “The American Police Force officials plan to stay in the area for the next month.”
The APF Better Beware!!!
Baaad place to start a fight,,,
Chan Freeper is channing.
Don’t know about spoiling for a fight, but if the organization is bogus, its representatives might be the first ones in that new jail...
Appreciate your comments. ty.
Ping for later
My pleasure (still watching though)
Jail was built on speculation funded by town bonds. The facility was intended to bring jobs (through those in need of incarceration).
Montana didn’t see the need to use the facility. It’s been idle for years.
A ‘recent’ news article (TV) is what brought it to attention (possible transfer of Guantanamo internees).
Many security companies (especially high-end) have a paramilitary/SWAT type force:
Just looks like it might be a low budget wannabe if not a fraud
“The Hardin City Council and the Two Rivers Authority have proposed that, when the Guantanamo Bay prison is closed down, some of the detainees there be transferred to Two Rivers. Montana’s state and federal officials have universally rejected its fitness and use for Guantanamo detainees.”
This “APF” seem to be FOOLS!!!
The locals ain’t gunna put up with their Krap,,,
Mite be “Boot Hill” for them Outsiders...;0)
You mean the ones in the article?
Why are these APF personnel shown in Soviet bloc/Warsaw Pact style uniforms?
Get them surplused at next to nothing!
I never go on the ‘chans. That’s the bottom of the Internet.
yeah, mine @ 30
By the by, the ‘locals’ aren’t all that well off. That’s why the prison was built there. (some considered taking in the Guantanamos!)
lol, from the depths, where memes are born.
How about those pimp wheels on the Mercedes? They won’t be able to keep tires on those rigs if they drive them hard!
TANKS a bunch for the info,,,
Makes sense now,,,
APF says they have only been active in the US for 5 years.
Is the double headed eagle unique to Serbia?
If this is, as I suspect, KLA connected, these operatives are most likely muslims. If that is true, and they are planning to ship Gitmo detainees to the prison in Hardin where these guys will be in charge.....
It sounds like they are casing the terrain.
Well. It stinks.
Land grab? I didn’t get that from the links. (might be me)
From news reports past week, it will actually be MORE beneficial to the town (by 3 times) than if the state had used the facility as built/intended.
The Mayor was on the local news saying so, thanking the Governor for not using the jail.
You make a great point!!!
Maybe they made a deal with the Crow ?
It Stinks aw’rite!!!...
Post # 46...
Someone clue in somebody if this is going on. We can’t have a bunch of hicks bamboozle by a gang of Moose.
The Bummer Crow?
