A private security force whose biggest role is helping the U.S. government to "combat terrorism" is now patrolling the streets of a town in Montana, acting as law enforcement but accountable to nobody and operating completely outside the limitations of the U.S. constitution in a chilling throwback to the brownshirts of Nazi Germany. The American Police Force organization is a paramilitary unit that "provides surveillance, investigative, and military services across the world," according to its website, which shows men dressed in military fatigues carrying machine guns.
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," reports AP.
APF were originally contracted to provide security at a previously empty detention center in Hardin, a small town in Montana, but are now patrolling the streets driving SUV’s with "Police Department" printed on them despite the fact that Hardin doesn’t have a police department. American Police Force has no jurisdiction in the area because it is a private organization, not a police force.According to Two Rivers Authority officials, having the private security force patrol the streets was not part of the contract. "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," Two Rivers Authority’s Al Peterson told KULR 8 News. Peterson said that patrolling the streets was on the "wishlist" of APF’s Captain Michael.
