In fact, it is keeping tabs on the swine flu pandemic and has its own "pandemic preparedness" page. Two items of note on this page under the topic "International SOS Capability" are "Medical Evacuation" and "RMR Capability

After then-Attorney General Mike McGrath issued a 2007 opinion saying prisoners from other states were prohibited, Hardin successfully sued the state.
Despite the city’s contention that the state has continued to foil its efforts to find prisoners, Montana Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Anez said his agency is no longer involved. “That’s water under the bridge,” Anez said.

In Hardin itself, said Colstad, the councilwoman, a conjunction of circumstances left a lot of people confused.
First there was APF wanting to take over the jail - and rolling into town last week in three Mercedes SUVs festooned with magnetic decals that said "City of Hardin Police Department." Officials later said the idea was only to demonstrate APF's commitment to helping Hardin form its own police department. [...]
Third was the discussion about deconsolidating law enforcement in Hardin and Big Horn County. The sheriff's department has provided all law enforcement in the city and county for years, but the two governments are moving closer to a plan to deconsolidate and have Hardin create its own police department.
When all those elements got mingled together, Colstad said, "a crazy assumption turned into a wildfire rumor."
Peterson said there is some connection between the jail and deconsolidation, however. The main reason the city council approved the sale of bonds to finance construction of the jail, he said, was that it was promised a share of the revenues, which it would then use to help fund the new police department.

So now instead of building a jail because there are prisoners that need housing, we are building jails and then "searching for prisoners" to fill them?
That is disgusting.

Update 3: 10/1/2009 10:50GMT: APF Head Hilton Has Criminal Past

CODY, Wyo. – Michael Hilton of American Police Force arrived in Hardin with promises of Mercedes police cars and expertise in operating prisons. He delivered the cars last week, but may have learned about prisons following a 1993 conviction for grand theft.
American Police Force, the paramilitary unit patrolling a small town in Montana, has been exposed as being a front group for the disgraced private military contractor Blackwater, now called “Xe”.
The American Police Force website, on a page that has swiftly been deleted but remains cached here, states that APF runs the “U.S. Training Center,” which proves “a wide range of instruction and training for all types of law enforcement organizations, from basic firearms training to complex SWAT tactics,” according to the website.
The Blackwater website carries on its contact page the following address, underneath the logo for U.S. Training Center.
Xe Services, LLC
PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958
Xe Services LLC is the new name of Blackwater USA. In addition, the U.S. Training Center contact page carries the exact same address.
PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958
The U.S. Training Center is run by Blackwater. Indeed, The U.S. Training Center website, can be accessed via Blackwater’s forwarding URL at www.blackwaterusa.com...
According to a February 2009 NY Times article, the U.S. Training Center is a Blackwater “subsidiary that conducts much of the company’s overseas operations and domestic training.” Blackwater changed the name of the facility from its old title, Blackwater Lodge and Training Center, earlier this this when they also changed their own name to “Xe”.
Since Blackwater runs the U.S. Training Center, and the American Police Force stated on its own website, before it was deleted this morning, that it also runs the U.S. Training Center, there is no other conclusion to draw but that APF and Blackwater are one and the same. Or in other words, APF is a front group for Blackwater.
