Montana’s Attorney General dropped his investigation in to California-based security company American Police Force Tuesday.
A statement released by Montana’s Attorney General Steve Bullock said the goal was to guarantee that, “No Montanans were taken advantage of or conned by this company.”
Since Michael Hilton and APF ended plans to do business in the state, Bullock’s office decided to suspend its inquiry. Officials asked APF to release documents about their funding, current contracts and corporate backing. APF did not provide these documents.
Spokeswoman Becky Shay said the company faxed the AG a one-page letter saying APF did no business in Montana other than to negotiate the jail contract, which they discontinued.
Bullock’s statement concludes, “Mr. Hilton’s failure to answer these simple questions about his company speaks volumes about his company’s legitimacy.”
