Less than a day after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, Paul Stapleton’s business had already doubled. Stapleton is the corporate director of the New York-based Stapleton Group, which provides bomb-sniffing dogs.
Since the explosions in Boston, he has fielded calls from three sporting arenas and some Wall Street firms asking for his explosive-detection canine teams to provide stepped-up security. Just about every one of our resources has been deployed since the Boston incident,” Stapleton told The Huffington Post on Tuesday. “We’ve grown 100 percent since yesterday. There’s been no downtime.” As the country recovers from the bombings in Boston, companies that offer security services are anticipating a surge in demand.
Businesses that provide building guards, explosive detection and security advice all stand to profit from heightened fears caused by the latest round of attacks on American soil.
