News crews from ABC 7 Eyewitness News in Chicago recently visited Blue Line's operations in Denver and profiled its new expansion efforts in Illinois. Through Blue Line Protective Services and Blue Line Illinois, Blue Line Protection Group is training protection and compliance teams in Illinois as the state gears up for medicinal marijuana dispensaries and cultivation facilities to open this year. Blue Line helps keep the cannabis industry operating lawfully and transparently by acting as an independent, third-party risk mitigation provider to banking institutions looking to provide their services to marijuana businesses.

"Our dedication to keeping this industry and the general public safe makes us the go-to organization for media who want the real story behind securing this industry," said Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line's Vice President of Operations and Compliance. "It's a tribute to our personnel, most of whom are former law enforcement or military professionals, that their efforts and professionalism are profiled in such a positive way by media organizations across the country."

CNBC's "Marijuana Country" documentary premiered on January 5th, 2015. In November and December of 2014, CNBC producers and technical crews visited Blue Line's corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado, as well as its new secure cash vaulting facility and National Academy for Protection Professionals training facility currently under construction. CNBC staff also profiled Blue Line security operators transporting cash and product throughout Denver and protecting dispensaries and grow facilities.

"News organizations across the country have taken notice of the positive effect we're having in the lawful cannabis industry," said Dan Sullivan, Blue Line's Vice President of Sales and Training. "Working in this industry has brought great interest from the media not only on a local level, but a national and international level, as well. The press are very interested in showing how the states have legitimized this industry, and that's one of the main reasons we've garnered consistently positive media attention."

Blue Line's exposure on CNBC and ABC 7 News in Chicago adds to the list of media organizations that have featured its professional security personnel and cannabis compliance and protection operations. Blue Line has also been featured internationally on French M6 Television, Tokyo TV and Univision, as well as domestically on CBS This Morning, The Wall Street Journal, ABC World News Tonight and 20/20, The Denver Post, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and more.
