Nov 2, 2017, 10:00am EDT

LIVERMORE, Calif., Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Vigilant Solutions, a global intelligence and image analytics company serving law enforcement agencies, announced today the appointment of retired Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Special Agent in Charge of the Philadelphia Field Division, Sam Rabadi, as director of business development.

Rabadi has dedicated his career to establishing and overseeing programs focused on reducing violent crime. He served in the ATF for 25 years, and from January 2013 until his retirement last month, he led the ATF’s Philadelphia Field Division as special agent in charge. In this role, Rabadi managed 15 field offices and more than 200 special agents, industry investigators, deputized police officers, intelligence and other support staff throughout Pennsylvania. Rabadi provided executive-level leadership over all criminal and regulatory investigations, intelligence collection programs, and the security and safety of ATF personnel in Pennsylvania.

“A dedicated high-ranking public servant, Sam has an impressive track record of implementing programs targeted at getting violent criminals and the weapons they use off the street,” said Shawn Smith, founder and president of Vigilant Solutions. “Sam joins Vigilant at a pivotal time for the company as we launch our own rapid ballistics analysis technology. Sam’s insight and experience managing strategic partnerships across federal, state and local law enforcement agencies adds invaluable expertise to the Vigilant team of law enforcement experts.”

During his tenure at the ATF, Rabadi created several programs to enhance investigative processes and tactics. He established the Philadelphia Crime Gun Intelligence Center, which now serves as a central clearinghouse of violent crime and firearms-related information. He also established the Philadelphia National Integrated Ballistics Information Network (NIBIN) Program. Prior to his work with the ATF, Rabadi served as a special agent in the United States Secret Service and a police officer with the Yonkers Police Department.

“I am excited to join Vigilant Solutions at a time of incredible innovation and growth,” Rabadi said. “At every stage of my career, I have embraced the opportunity to advance people, processes and technology to reduce violent crime. I look forward to leveraging that experience to further Vigilant’s goal: to equip law enforcement agencies of all sizes with the best image analytics tools and best practices to develop investigative leads and solve crimes.”

Rabadi holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Manhattan College and a Master of Arts degree in Industrial Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

> Overkill’s Bobby Blitz: Adaptation + Reinvention Fuels Longevity; Singer Talks ‘The Grinding Wheel’ [Interview]
> By Full Metal Jackie February 13, 2017 10:26 AM

Overkill‘s Bobby Blitz was the latest guest on Full Metal Jackie’s weekend radio program discussing the thrasher’s new album, ‘The Grinding Wheel.’ The record is the 18th from the New Jersey icons and the frontman spoke about keeping their sound fresh with different dynamics, their work ethic, longevity, their punk influences and more. Check out the chat below.

*** begin quote ***

>> Bobby, another band called Overkill was part of the Los Angeles punk scene at the same time that your band was beginning on the East Coast. How aware were you of them and the L.A. punk scene in general?

>> Well of course we were aware of it. They released I think simultaneous or very close to our first release and I think there was confusion from both camps, people either the metalheads or the people in that L.A. punk scene. I actually remember the record and own it, it’s called The Triumph of the Will which came out in 1985 when our Feel the Fire [album] came out. We weren’t that close to the L.A. punk scene.

>> But I can tell you, we were very close to the New York punk scene. When I went to Manhattan college in the Bronx, I was a one train, subway ride away from getting down to The Village. Being able to walk on the hallowed ground of CBGBs, Great Gildersleeves, The Mud Club even existed at that point. Max’s of Kansas City. That is where a lot of our energetic inspiration came from. There were iconic bands from that era and area that existed whether it be The Ramones or I remember seeing Blondie on the street. Iggy Pop was living in New York. The Dead Boys came in from Cleveland and set up house in New York and I was also a big [New York] Dolls and Heartbreakers fan. So I think punk for sure influences this band, but I think it was more East Coast punk.
