SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 8, 2014) - Guardian 8 Holdings, (OTCQB: GRDH) a provider of enhanced non-lethal (ENL) defense devices, today announced that it has secured a strategic alliance with the California Association of Licensed Security Agencies, Guards and Associates (CALSAGA) to provide products and training to its members. CALSAGA has over 90,000 members in California, and has led efforts during the past several years to bring greater accountability in licensing, training and background screening standards that has made the state a national leader in security.
"From small firms to some of the largest private security companies in the world, CALSAGA understands the issues and needs of licensed security agencies and guards," said Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet. "With the organization's membership strength, they know that it's not a black-and-white, armed versus unarmed choice when it comes to security services. Guardian 8 provides that intermediate level of non-lethal force the industry and its customers have longed for." It is estimated that California has over 230 registered security companies represented within the organization.
The two-year agreement allows Guardian 8 to provide CALSAGA members with a specialty mix of products and training at pricing levels that are not offered to the general public. The bundle includes a Pro V2 unit, holster and Instructor Course for one low price. The product plays an important role as an account acquisition tool for some security service providers that win new business by incorporating the Pro V2 layered defense capabilities for as little as a five-cent increase in their hourly billable rates. The pricing advantage to CALSAGA members provides additional competitive strength to early adopters.
For additional details on Guardian 8 please visit the Guardian 8 website. CALSAGA pricing is available by request from any authorized Guardian 8 representative.
CALSAGA is the only industry association in California dedicated to advocating on behalf of the security industry in the Legislature and at the Bureau of Security & Investigative Services (BSIS). The CALSAGA membership is divided into eight regions spanning the entire state of California. Each region has a director, and the directors are responsible for representing respective regions at board meetings, holding annual region meetings and serving as the general daily contact and guidance for their members.
