Police equipment entrepreneur Roy Bedard, 41, dates his exporting to 1998 in Mexico. In the fragmented U.S. market, a 1,000-person force is big; he sold Mexico’s federal police on his product — and it purchased 7,000 units. A champion martial arts expert and then police officer, Bedard trains police, corrections, military and private security personnel to use his Rapid Rotation Baton and other products.
