We have personally contacted Dave Edmonds and he assures us that there are no hidden agenda's other than finding LEO's wishing to write articles and/or just improve their writing style. If you have any questions, please direct them to Mr. Edmonds.

Name: Dave Edmonds

Email: apb.dave@360armor.org

Phone: 707-490-9010

Subject: American Police Beat magazine, interested in our officers writing for us

Message: Hello, I’m a retired LEO and manager/editor for American Police Beat magazine. We’re looking for new LEO writers and I’m hoping you can put the below or something similar in your next newsletter to your members. My phone number is 707-490-9010 if you’d like to discuss.


Dave Edmonds

“‘Have you ever thought about publishing a law enforcement article? Here’s your chance. My name is Dave Edmonds and I’m a retired 34-year Deputy Sheriff from Sonoma County, California. I work for American Police Beat magazine, and we're looking for a cadre of new LEO writers.

I know that many LEOs have interesting and useful insights to share but don't know how to get started. When I first started writing for law enforcement magazines back in 2010, I know I wasted a lot of time and was pretty lost. So if you’ve ever thought about trying to publish an article this is a great opportunity. Also, if you’re a subject-matter expert who might want some help writing the article(s), one of our professional writers can be assigned to you. Please contact me at apb.dave@360armor.org.


Thank you for your reply. I have answered your anticipated questions below. I am available anytime if you or anyone else has additional questions. Justin Brighty, Security Detection, Central Division

Please see the following:

  • Our Security Detection Central Division headquarters is at 6626 Monroe Street, Sylvania OH. I am the point of contact, my cell phone number is 419-351-7074. Security Detection is broken up into East, Central, and West territories. I am one of the owners in the Central division.
  • Our website is www.securitydetection.com We are working directly with Garrett Metal Detectors and their website is www.garrett.com Product details on the Garrett website can be found under the security and thermal pages.  
  • This sales position is for selling Garrett walk through metal detectors that range in price from $2750.00 to $3495.00 along with the SmartScan thermal solution upgrade which sells for a price range of $7995.00 to $8995.00. Garrett also has a wide range of accessories.
  • This is an independent sales contractor position. The salary is $42,000.00 a year plus a commission of 30% of the profit of sales.
  • Once more COVID-19 restrictions are removed we will have training at the factory in Garland Texas. Until then Garrett has a training simulator that can be completed online.
  • As an independent sales contractor, the salesperson would be responsible for the vehicle, food, and hotel expenses if needed. The travel and lodging for training at the factory would be covered by Security Detection & Garrett Metal Detectors.
  • The region that this sales position will cover is Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County. The only travel would consist of these 3 counties. After a solid presence of Security Detection / Garrett Metal Detectors is established in these counties we would expand into other Florida counties.
  • This salesperson would receive factory leads. We would expect this salesperson to make sales visits to courthouses, police departments, shipping ports, cruise ports, etc. to market Garrett Metal Detectors.  

The rep would be a 1099 contractor. The sales representative would receive referrals however this person would be required to make cold calls to public buildings and other locations, this is also something that the salesperson could schedule prior. The only computer-related requirements would be for quoting equipment and communication. Learning how metal detectors work and features would be the only technical requirements. We do have technicians based out of Orlando that are able to handle service work and installations if needed.
