27. Wackenhut specializes in security contracts. Government contracts
just a theory

Wackenhut specializes in security contracts. Government contracts
are best, of course, and the company's remarkable growth is due on
no small part to George Wackenhut's relationship to certain
government officials. His first big break came when he secured a
contract to watch over Titan missile sites in four states. Since
then, security and public safety functions have proven a lucrative
focus. Wackenhut provides security guards for such high-risk
installations as the trans-Alaska pipelines, major airports both
in the United States and abroad, dams and the nuclear test site in
Nevada. It also owns a casualty reinsurance firm, a travel
service, and an airline services company. The Department of energy
provides 25% of Wackenhut's total gross. Their operatives also
serve friends of the U. S. Govt. and Big Oil (like the fugitive
Shah of Iran), abroad as well as at home.
