Blue Line Protection Group Expands Operations Into Colorado's Third-Largest City With New Security and Transportation Contract

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2014) - Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. "Blue Line" (OTCBB: BLPG) (OTCQB: BLPG), a leader in providing regulatory compliance, security consultation and protection services to high-value asset industries, today expanded its operations into Aurora -- Colorado's third-largest city -- with a new security and transportation contract with Medicine Man's two Colorado locations.

"With Aurora's recent acceptance of licensed retail marijuana stores, Blue Line is ready to respond to the security, compliance and product and cash transportation needs of these new cannabis operations," said Sean Campbell, Blue Line's Chief Executive Officer. "We want to bring our proven methods of developing transparent, responsible and legitimate marijuana businesses to this untapped and profitable market."

The city of Aurora recently opened its doors to retail cannabis establishments and awarded licenses to 21 new stores on August 28th. Applicants were required to complete a rigorous testing process which examined their security procedures, industry experience, criminal background, financial liquidity, and more. Medicine Man Aurora won its license to operate at 1901 S. Havana St., located in the city's Ward IV. It is scheduled to open on "Black Friday," traditionally one of the busiest shopping days of the year as consumers gear up for the holiday season.

Blue Line will provide armed security personnel at Medicine Man's two locations in Denver and Aurora, as well as armored transportation services for product and the dispensaries' cash tax payments to government revenue agencies on a monthly basis.

"We're pleased to expand our relationship with Blue Line Protection Group as we begin operations in our new Aurora store," said Sally Vander Veer, Medicine Man's Controller. "Blue Line personnel help us provide a safe and secure retail experience for our customers and staff. As the first point of contact for our customers, Blue Line's armed guards create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and their armored transportation services ensure that our cash assets and valuable product reach their destination safe and secure."

Medicine Man's other retail location in Denver opened in 2010 and quickly made a name for itself as one of the state's largest medical marijuana stores. It became the first to apply for its recreational marijuana license and grew to become one of the largest marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.

"We're the clear choice for retail operations looking for top-tier customer service and licensed and trained security professionals primarily with law enforcement and military experience," said Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line's Vice President of Operations and Compliance. "We look forward to protecting our clients and their assets in the new Aurora market and ensuring the safety of the customers, staff and general public around these new retail locations. Our protection services, coupled with our compliance verification and risk mitigation services for banking institutions, make us the clear choice for cannabis store owners who want to operate lawful, legitimate and profitable businesses."
