August 16, 2010

NEW YORK, NY – August 16, 2010 - T&M Protection Resources, LLC, a global provider of premium security and investigative services to leading corporate, institutional and private clients for nearly three decades, is pleased to announce that Michael Stapleton, a pioneer and recognized expert in the specialized training and handling of explosive detection canines, has entered into an exclusive relationship with T&M to lead the expansion of its Explosive Detection Canine (EDC) division.  Mr. Stapleton is President of Camp Frontline, Ltd., a unique, state-of-the-art canine training facility that enables bomb dogs and their handlers to train with actual explosives on its ten acre campus, providing the most sophisticated and up-to-date explosive detection services available in the private sector today.

“When T&M decided to expand its EDC services we reached out to the best and most experienced person in the industry,” said Robert S. Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M. “Mike Stapleton is the foremost expert in the training and deployment of superior explosive detection canine teams and we are thrilled that he is partnering with T&M as we expand and enhance our EDC capabilities.”

A former member of the elite NYPD Emergency Services Unit, Stapleton entered the private sector in the late 1980’s to provide protection for high-profile properties and events. Today, as the head of Camp Frontline, the training models he developed over the years for canine detection of explosives, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs), have become standard in the industry.

“With terrorist threats a major concern for the public, law enforcement officials and private security experts in the U.S. and around the world, trained bomb dog teams are a critical element in protecting global organizations, public places and critical infrastructure from explosives,”  Mr. Stapleton stated.  “T&M, which already provides expert EDC services, is perfectly positioned to expand its capabilities in this technology and I am very pleased to be working with Robert Tucker and his excellent team.”
