SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2014) - Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), manufacturer of the G8 Pro V2 enhanced non-lethal (ENL) defense device, announced that a globally recognized family theme park has placed an initial order for G8 Pro V2 units and certification training for its security personnel.
The order was structured through Guardian 8's strategic alliance with the California Association of Licensed Security Agencies, Guards and Associates (CALSAGA) to provide preferred pricing on products and training to its members. The member theme park operates in California as well as many other states and countries, but is not being identified as it could disclose a portion of their confidential security response plan.
"The CALSAGA alliance is making key connections for Guardian 8 with its membership, not just in the State of California, but across the U.S.," said Steve Cochennet, Guardian 8 President and CEO. "We're seeing positive impact and surging interest for non-lethal response in the public venue and sports arena verticals and look forward to getting the Pro V2 into the hands of more CALSAGA affiliates."
The theme park staff training will be completed by end of April and devices are anticipated to be shipped within the second quarter.
The layered defense options of the Pro V2 are well suited for deployment in public venues where security personnel are first responders to incidents. Security officers with a non-lethal option can respond to incidents appropriately and with a reasonable amount of force to end a confrontation, while making contact with authorities and recording the incident for evidence. The Pro V2 can be used in locations where stun devices and firearms are prohibited by law.
