A secretive California outfit called the American Police Force [2] is taking over the 2-year-old, never-used prison in Hardin, Mont., that was briefly considered a possible spot for Guantanamo prisoners.

The story has many twists and turns. We recommend you read The Billings Gazette [4] article for a primer on the story. KULR TV [5], of Billings, Mont., The Missoulian [6], and Talking Points Memo [7] are also on the case.

APF’s website, [8] which has been periodically unavailable (click here for a recent cache of their site), [9] says it “leverages the talent and expertise of their extensive global network to provide local, regional, and national security solutions to the United States Government and other clients who are in need of customized private investigative services.”



Here’s its website pitch:

Whether you are suspicious about a cheating spouse or concerned about a personal threat, APF’s team will employ their experience to fulfill your domestic investigation needs.

In one odd twist, Becky Shay, a reporter for the Billings Gazette who has reported extensively on the Hardin Prison, quit her job and is now a spokeswoman for the group in Hardin. Except that she now mainly has “no comment” when pressed about what is going on.
