      Greetings Members:

      As you probably have, I've encountered difficulties getting some local,
      state and federal records since the attacks of 9/11.

      I'm fairly familiar with the public records we regularly check in
      California, but I'd like to hear about your experiences with other, more
      obscure records here or about your experience with the "typical" records in
      your area as well as the more obscure. I'm preparing for a seminar that
      updates the information about public records availability since 9/11.
      Investigators have been pestering me to bring this information together for
      a long time. I'm finally taking the time to organize it. Already, folks in
      other states and in Northing California are asking for a similar seminar.
      I'm not sure I can take it on the road, but it doesn't hurt to gather the
      information anyway.

      Here are the records I consider "typical" or "regular":

      Local and state court records, property tax records, recorded deeds
      (grantor-grantee), DBAs (fictitious name, assumed names), voter records,
      drivers license and vehicle registration records, business permits, U.S.
      District Court records (civil, criminal, bankruptcy, naturalization),
      secretary of state corporate records, local and state vital records (birth,
      marriage, divorce, death), military records (National Personnel Records
      Center) and postal forwarding addresses.

      I consider these the more obscure - albeit valuable when the situation

      Prison and jail records, wants and warrants, non-profit tax returns,
      campaign financing records, animal regulation records, building permits,
      parking ticket, alcohol permits, business tax permits, FAA records, FCC
      records, Department of Transportation records, hunting permits, fishing
      permits, state disability appeals board records, restaurant inspection
      records, elevator permits, toxic chemical permits, boats and vessels permits
      and licenses, fire inspection permits, reciprocal enforcement support (out
      of county child custody) reports, Meagan's list, concealed weapons permits,
      probate records, unclaimed property records, demolition permits, gambling
      licenses, statements of economic interest (conflict of interest statements),

      There are so many more.

      But hey, if you've encountered problems with any of these (or others), would
      you share it with me (to my personal e-mail or to the entire list)? Also,
      just as importantly, have you found clever or innovative ways of
      circumventing the obstacles or roadblocks?

      Thanks for sharing your experiences.

        Course Summaries
        Modern Concepts of Protective Services
        As a Professional Protection Specialist we must continue to evolve with and practice professional methods as the frequency and threat levels rise. The over all concept of modern personal protective services is to provide a pro-active protective barrier which tries to prevent even the possibility of an assault and in the gravest of extremes tries to minimize
        the effect or success from any assault. The mission for a Professional security detail

        Instructor Michael D. Park retired as a career professional Special Agent (Inspector) in the United States Marshals Service. He has an extensive background in investigating and apprehending violent felony fugitives along with SWAT Police and Military Counterintelligence training. He was a staff member of SOG (Special Operations Group) and the first agency sponsored defensive tactics instructor to the "Shadow Stalkers". (See US Elite Counter-Terrorist Forces book by S. F. Tomajczk). The first part of his federal career involved tracking down and arresting armed and dangerous federal fugitives and then as a manager, (Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal) he supervised a mix of local, State and Federal agents in joint task forces bent on bringing in the most violent of felony
        offenders. He's been called a professional government "man hunter".

Before he retired from this sometimes undercover and always semi-covert program, however, the trend was changing to international terrorism, Russian thugs, political asylum refugees and even periodic special assignments overseas for missions involving American National interest. These mostly classified details were in support of State Department initiatives and Presidential policy directives. After graduating from the Coastal Institute of Forensic Science and becoming a Licensed
        Polygraph Examiner Mr. Park formed Dallas Polygraph Services (DPS), A professional loss prevention, polygraph investigation and security consulting firm. DPS conducts polygraph examinations, internal investigations, and other special operations and consulting to valued
