Blue Line Protection Group Responds to New Cannabis Legalization With Industry Training Standards

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 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 announced its National Academy for Protection Professionals is now offering its Cannabis Industry Security and Protection Academy (CISPA) to industry professionals across the nation. Blue Line created its CISPA training program to develop and deliver consistent cannabis industry protection training to security and compliance professionals who want to enter the expanding legal cannabis industry.

"With the passage of marijuana legalization measures in Oregon, Alaska and Washington D.C., it's imperative that we help the industry operate safely by training protection and compliance professionals across the United States," said Sean Campbell. "We've already had our Illinois teams come to train with us, and we have teams placed in Alaska and Oregon, who will be coming for training. The creation of our CISPA training program will also help us accommodate the need for qualified additional professionals as new states come on board."

Blue Line's National Academy for Protection Professionals offers security and protections groups from around the country the opportunity to grow their businesses in the expanding legalized cannabis industry. Blue Line's training standards were designed to help licensed security providers increase their market penetration and offer a standardized, turnkey solution to dispensaries and cultivation facilities who need a complete security and compliance solution to protect their cash and product.

"We help develop and deploy practical, profitable business plans for companies just entering the competitive cannabis security and protection industry," said Dan Sullivan, Blue Line's Vice President of Sales and Training. "We help those business owners deploy our proven and tested methods of compliance and protection services, which in turn helps them operate more efficiently and with fewer initial business development expenses. Our training facility provides additional revenue streams for Blue Line, from security professionals coming in from other states for the CISPA training, to individuals seeking their protection industry certification, to all of our in-house and on-site safety seminars."

Blue Line provides on-site security, transportation and compliance verification services to marijuana businesses to ensure that they are operating according to local, state and federal regulations. 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.

"We've developed the winning formula for building a successful protection and compliance business," said Grant Whitus, Blue Line's National Training Director and 26-year law enforcement and SWAT team veteran. "We provide practical, hands-on experience in the cannabis protection industry that no other organization provides. From armored transportation and firearms training to retail security and superior customer relations, our CISPA training helps us share our experience with teams from around the nation."

Blue Line offers the CISPA training program at its corporate offices in Denver, Colorado. Blue Line also provides on-site training across the nation for industry professionals. For more information about Blue Line Protection Group and its training opportunities, visit www.BlueLineProtectionGroup.com.
