NYPD

While Fenton was with the New York City Police Department he befriended Harry Stone, a person that he trusted completely[9]. Fenton left the force while Harry was still there, but several years later Fenton Hardy and his sons would join forces with Harry Stone, who had resigned from the New York City police force in order to work for NASA as security chief, when Fenton was investigating the theft of a satellite that had recently been put into orbit[10]. A short while later Fenton's trust in Harry Stone would be tested when an international espionage ring sought to make it look like Harry Stone was apart of a plot to steal the Longeye satellite. However, thanks to Frank and Joe, Fenton's trust in Stone was restored when evidence was uncovered indicating that Stone and his deputy chief at NASA, Lew Gorman, had been part of a frame-up and were innocent of any charges[11].
