In February of 2012 a write-up to http://CopBlock.org
titled, "Frustrated, Detroit Residents Compete with Police" included a
picture of Dale Brown, founder of the Threat Management Center.
In early 2013 when Pete Eyre visited Detroit as part of the http://copblock.org/tour
he reached-out to Brown, who graciously welcomed Eyre at his facility.
After the Detroit police department stopped responding to 911 calls, a private firm filled the gap. (Thanks to Robert Fellner.)
