I feel I must protect future employees of the bad business practices of Ocean State Protective Services. An employee should feel that they are protected by their employer, when they report they are being harassed by a new Homeowners Board of Directors and a vindictive owner with an agenda against a long time employee who has done nothing wrong, but has kept their community from crime and worked closely with the local Sheriff's Dept. This is not what happens with this company. Tony (P) and his wife Elizabeth(VP)aka the screamer, do nothing to look into the behavior of a contract they hold to ensure that the harassed employee is telling the truth and stop the harassment from continuing even to the point of the employee having to see a doctor for the effect on his health. This, on his own as no benefits are paid by the employer. $$$$$ is the bottom line here. Work for this employer, at your own risk. He will make sure and he states this continually, that no one will ever collect any of HIS money. After seeing first hand how he lies to accomplish this, is shocking. He knows his ways around everything to keep a penny from leaving his hands, while he will not replace or repair any vehicles until they are endangering anyone on the road and that is when he feels like it. Makes his employees work with roach infested vehicles (homeowners has been grossed out by this), tires not road safe, gas cards with no money on them. He will also work with unlicensed employees(this is a fact that was recently revealed), a body is good enough for him even if, ignorant of the job.

Don't Believe it Until You've Seen it Twice & Heard it Three Times...

AUTHOR: The Shadow - (United States of America)

"Protecting future employees"...  "Seeing first hand*ibid* the lies to accomplish [his] goals..."

Sadly, this is a letter/report/slander made against a company- that like many companies in the US- must fight against when some "victim" needs to find vindication for their own malicious and often ignorant self acts perpetrated in the name of "just doing their job".

Though only having known the owner and some of his staff/family/employees- I have deep knowledge of his operation, goals and desires not only for himself but for those he keeps as his charges [the employees themselves].

His company is the first I've ever known to literally give the car out of his service to someone who desperately needed the transportation to keep working for him- and when that vehicle became damaged through no fault of their own- even "ponied up" the repairs and allowed that employee to work it off in ligitimate trade just to keep that valued individual from falling to an otherwise dismal way-side.

I know of a man who with only my own "scatterbrained" resume- skilled as I am at what I've done both in the military and for Fortune Five companies- he kept me in mind when that "Fortune Five" decided I was no more useful than a marrow sucked-dry bone to them.  Without him and his faith in his fellow man I might have still been unemployed without his faith and what I'd consider "gut level instincts".

The Report made here has "grains" of truth.

ANY car could/would havbe a roach problem if the dumb-assed employees left their pistacheo rejects under the driver's seat...  This owner's very protocals for starting a shift relay that the officer assuming command of the vehicle check said vehicle for problems.  At what point does an officer stop bitching and put pen to paper and make sure that vehicular needs are stipulated IN WRITING so that there's no misunderstandings..?

ANY vehicle could have bad tires, a fuel issue or coolant problems- show me a motor pool and I'll show you a*s holes that can't find their own posteriors with a road map and gps shoved in the self-same orriface.

The owner has been available to me as well as anyone I've cared to check with by phone at any of the day or night.


Whomever made this initial report holds a grudge along with an axe to grind.

We all have our delusions- far be it from me to take away his/hers.

My delusion is that I was witness and been an employee to a man and a company that, despite vitriolic attacks from what is an obviously errant individual- I see an employer, company owner and HUMAIN being that stands proud, personally handing each man his paycheck- if they had a dispute or concern- it was dealt with in seconds and amended no later than the next pay-period. 

I've seen a man who stood up for me when others were unwilling or unable.

I continue to see a man who quite literally has given the shirt off his back to give even his most [shall we say] "mundane" of employees chance-after-chance to make-good or correct their errant ways.

This "report" is most likely from a person with a "victim" mentality- who's used to a stop sign actually being printed to say "If you really knew me, you'd already know what this meant".

Look to teh owner for guidance and then look to his employees at "cash in" for their paychecks.  Talk to both. When the talk is done offer to ride with one or two or make the rounds with owner personally...

"Don't believe in ANYTHING until you've seen it twice and heard it three times."

To do anything less makes fools of the uncommitted and travesties to the justice due a man so accused.

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company


AUTHOR: Myosps - (United States of America)

Please remember this is only one side of a long story. I am very disappointed that this person has chosen to post this.  I am a good employer and you can ask anyone of my employees that have been with my company for years. I have always backed my employees 100% when they are in the right. I cannot help an employee that chooses to act on his or her own. My company has a good reputation and I treat my employees Like Family.
