I've been referred to this medium article, which makes a series of claims about the roll of private contractors in providing crowd control services for Federal Agencies.

Specifically, I am interested in whether the Federal Protection Service is using Triple Canopy "Contract Officers" to control crowds at the protests in Portland, Oregon.

The author, Bill Conroy, seems to be a longtime investigator, journalist, and editor. He links quite a few articles and websites to back up his claims.

I've found some documentation that suggests FPS has recently been contracting Triple Canopy, and that FPS knew or should have known about potential conduct issues with Triple Canopy. Is there evidence one way or another, on whether Triple Canopy or other "Contract Officers" are present and active at the Portland Protests?

    @MaxB I'm not particularly interested in the legality of use of Contract Officers, only the nature of their presence and actions in Portland. A Legal act isn't necessarily ethical, just, or wise. – Dent7777 Jul 30 at 13:22
