In the least surprising development of the day, American Private Police Force has declined to answer the Montana attorney general’s questions seeking information about its (supposed) business and (supposed) past clients.
Attorney General Steve Bullock sent a letter two weeks ago demanding the information, before the deal for APPF to run a jail in Hardin fell apart.
KTVQ in Billings reports:
According to APF Spokeswoman, Becky Shay, the company’s representative, Michael Hilton, faxed a one page response to Bullock’s office on Monday stating that American Private Police Force did not do business in Montana.
In the fax Hilton admitted the company attempted to form a contract with Two Rivers Detention Facility in Hardin, but backed away from the contract and have left Montana.
Bullock, among other things, asked for verification of claims on APPF’s one-of-a-kind Web site.
Shay previously said she had urged Hilton to respond to the AG’s request. Her efforts were apparently to no avail.
