  • What Is The Connection Between Wackenhut's GEO Group's Civilian Police International Inc and The American Police Force Corporation?

    On September 20th, this is what Becky Shay reported on September 20th for the Billings Gazette.

    "APF officials will say only that their parent corporation is a private security company that has been operating detention centers internationally since being incorporated in 1984."



    According to this article, there was a private detention contractor incorporated in 1984. It was called Wackenhut Corrections.



    On November 18, 2003, at a special meeting, WCC's shareholders approved a change in the corporate name of WCC from "Wackenhut Corrections Corporation" to "The GEO Group, Inc."


    Then in 2006,


    "Wackenhut is a joint venture partner along with MPRI, Kellogg Brown and Root and AGS in the civilian police training company Civilian Police International, LLC which is under a State Department contract for $1.6 billion to work with the Civilian Police and Rule of Law office in coordination with the United Nations training emerging police forces around the world."

  1. I've been looking into Vance Global, est. 1984., Headquarters just outside the D.C. beltway. Look at the background of one of their VPs:

    They were acquired by Garda Global, a Canadian version of Blackwater, in 2006.

    Both Vance and Garda deploy mercenaries in Iraq, and btw Serbians work for cheap.

    Then again the Wackenhut angle is also interesting: They run a Migrant Operations Center (MOC) at Guantanamo. Thats a link to the Freedom of Information Act file on one of their contracts.

    I didn't know Gitmo held migrants.

    From OMB: almost $500M in government contracts per year. This is from the 1st and 2nd quarter of 2008:
