According to their Public Relations Director Becky Shay, who was a special phone guest on Mr. Gonzales' program, the corporation was formed in California in February of 2009, and has a 10 year contract with the Two Rivers Authority to operate the facility.
also added that A.P.F.'s
intention to expand their operations into cities in multiple states within the United States.
According to Ms. Shay
, the facility will hold only minimum and medium security detainees for a maximum period of one year.
Ms. Shay is an experienced journalist, having worked as a reporter for 20 years until she was hired as A.P.F.'s Public Affairs Specialist.
While Ms. Shay
seems to be a straightforward and accommodating spokeswoman, there seems to be many unanswered questions about A.F.P., and especially about the company's leader, Michael Hilton.
To be fair to Ms. Shay, she is just beginning her career as their Public Relations Director, and she no doubt has her hands full trying to bring herself up to speed with her new employers, having been on the job a mere 6 days.
Now.... Having established a bit of the background behind the controversy surrounding the Two Rivers Detention Center
, It must be pointed out that according to multiple eyewitness sources from Hardin, except for Ms. Shay
, all other A.P.F. employees stationed in and around the facility are foriegn born, mostly eastern European men who conduct themselves in a very intimidating and less than friendly manner.

I would also like to thank Ms. Shay
