    He has had a number of names in business since 1982. He first started off as Winslow Security, and then got in big trouble because he forgot a big step, he didn't have a license from the board of private detectives and protective agents. He narrowly escaped prosecution on that one (its good to be married to elected officials daughters).

    Then he switched the business name to Chase Security, and had the former Anoka County Park Police Chief as his qualified Representative.

    After running into trouble over the armored car fiasco, he changed the name to Avalon Security.

    At some point, for reasons I don't know, he changed it again to Avalon Fortress.

    Lets see, thats 4 names since his start, and non of those involved a change in ownership.

I can't figure why anyone should be concerned about his security people moving money from plant to plant on Honeywell property. I agree that there needs to be some sort of special cert to move money from over the road locations as protection and liability to the carrier. But as I understand it he was on foot from vending areas, cafeterias etc on Honeywell property. Why he didn't just get a cert is open for speculation. Could be those dam boat payments got in the way. Had I read the entire law it would take a week. My word count even rebelled on this one.

    He was also providing non-armored car, armored car service to Valley Fair. And that was not internal money movement. He was transporting large amounts of money in ryder style moving trucks.

    At the nuclear power plant they continue to have special constable

I even heard a guy say "its like being reserve police, only for the Marshals".

    The part about him being a licensed police officer could mean that he's attended a police academy and/or worked/works are a reserve somewhere, which a lot of security company owners and employees do to enhance their marketability. It doesn't have to mean he "retired" from LE then started his company, he could have been doing several things at once...........

    Or he could just be a lying crook of %^&*. Many people try to hype their credentials.

    Just saying we don't know .

    The one in the Avalon ad sure looks like UPS brown and design.
    Its a standard body, the one in the Avalon ad. If you've got the cash, you can buy purpose specific trucks like that.

    You know, when I shop a patch onto a uniform cause my client is too cheap to actually send me pics of real people in real uniforms... I tend to replace ALL the patches, and at least apply some skillz to it.

    Here are some things I have always found funny:
    RGB Color 000 is Black, or "all the phosphors or LEDs are off." Here's a hint, folks: This color does not exist in nature, or if it does, you couldn't see it. Clothes, patches, etc have shadows on them. They have texture.

    That's how you can tell that the Whitestone Group's patrol car was real, the emblem actually was placed over a side trim. Whereas the van, a bus I've seen, etc... There's no rivets underneath the logo. There's no lighting effects on the logos. etc.

    You know, I'm almost tempted to pick an unlicensed state (to avoid legal problems) and make a site for a security company. Then invite people to critique it and tell me what's real (Well, nothing, but you know), what's shopped, and what's hilarious.

    However, on the van... There's a few things to remember: Those cans at auction are cheap. Its a rolling billboard, and people will invest in silly things. I know a security firm in Florida that has a bus. A full sized Greyhound bus, for their central operations gimmick.

    While it looks shopped, look at the hood. Whoever did that, got the colors right, etc, is actually pretty good. Or, the truck is real.

    The owner is 49 years old and started the company in 1982 according to their website. I wonder how someone is a "former W.A.E. Deputy United States Marshal and a licensed police officer" at the ripe old age of 24, or more importantly, why someone is a "former W.A.E. Deputy United States Marshal and a licensed police officer" at 24 years of age, seems like an awful short career in law enforcement.

    I know some police officers that are, deputized U.S. Marshal's and deputized D.E.A. Agent's.
    That may very well be true, but are their law enforcement careers over at age 24? Seems weird being that the minimum age to become a police officer in most area's is 21.
