here's some background:
Montana Town Occupied By Private Paramilitary Security Force
So now we continue...
Here is the APF (American Police Force) logo:
Lots of questions regarding the logo of this FPS company.
Why are they using a logo that incorporates the coat of arms of Serbia?
Why does it have the sun rays of the Serbian socialist party?
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is a sub company of Blackwater or simply a company that does the same things.
Who and what is behind this company?
The website for APF is down, however GOOGLE has a cached copy.
We can find out their addresses and phone numbers from the Google cache
Lets check the first address:
1202 East 17th Street Suite 200
Santa Ana, CA 92701
When we visit the Santa Ana address in Google Streetview we get a strip mall type of business but for some reason the names on several of the signs
are blurred on purpose (at least I think so, compare them to legibility of the others)
You can view
the street view here
So the question is, how are they able to blur the signs? I was under the impression gov/mil only could do this? Maybe you can fax a request to Google
to do this? I have no idea.
They also have a location in Washington DC: 1701 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Suite 300
Selected businesses at this address:
Corn Refiners Association Inc
Groom Law Group Chartered
Grosvenor USA Ltd
National Society of Scholars
Russell Reynolds Associates Inc
St Martin Andree M
Sullivan & Cromwell
Time Warner Cable
There are others, but these are the interesting ones.

Funny thing is that there is no news whatsoever about this company online BEFORE SEPT 12 2009!
This is the first mention it gets:
But questions are emerging over the legitimacy of the company, American Police Force.
Government contract databases show no record of the company. Security industry representatives and federal officials said they had never heard of it.
On its Web site, the company lists as its headquarters a building in Washington near the White House that holds "virtual offices." A spokeswoman for
the building said American Police Force never completed its application to use the address.
And it's unclear where the company will get the inmates for the jail. Montana says it's not sending inmates to the jail, and neither are federal
officials in the state.
An attorney for American Police Force, Maziar Mafi, describes the Santa Ana, Calif., company as a fledgling spin-off of a major security firm founded
in 1984. But Mafi declined to name the parent firm or provide details on how the company will finance its jail operations.
"APF plays a
critical role in helping the U.S. government meet vital homeland security and national defense needs," the company says on its Web site. "Within the
last 5 years the United States has been far and away our" number 1 client.
However, an Associated Press search of two comprehensive federal government contractor databases turned up no record of American Police Force.
so this IS a spin-off of a MAJOR security firm founded in 1984!
Ok so lets see which security companies where founded in 1984...
Some security companies offering these services founded in 1984:
(aquired by Pinkerton
(acquired by Garda World Security Corporation
What does this all mean!?
I have no clue! maybe you can help?
I think if we follow the money we can trace from person to person and get to the bottom faster but will that ever happen?
For instance, how did they get the contract for the Montana town? Who where the people involved, how was the deal brokered, etc
