"We are extremely pleased to work with the experienced and respected Blue Line Protection Group team," said Jim Bent, Emerald Fields' Vice President of Operations. "Because their security operators are primarily former military or law enforcement personnel, we feel confident that they can provide us the high level of customer service and security that we need to create a safe and secure retail establishment for our valued customers."
