OtterBox: Tough on Technology So Law Enforcement Can Stay Tough on Crime

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Harsh and unpredictable environments in the law enforcement industry can be tough on today's technology. Add longevity to BlackBerry® devices and other valuables with protective cases from OtterBox, exhibiting with Verizon Wireless at the National Sheriffs' Association Conference in Indianapolis, Ind., June 30th through July 2nd, booth # 1103.

New technology enables officers to access police databases and records at the touch of a button, but their on-the-go lifestyle often leads to drops, bumps and scratches. One wrong move can result in expensive repairs, replacements and even downtime. With entire departments relying on BlackBerry smartphones to stay connected, OtterBox offers cases to safeguard devices and save money.

"Because of the protection OtterBox cases provide, law enforcement agencies can confidently deploy BlackBerry devices knowing they will hold up in the field," said Brandy Hansen, Business Development Executive for Otter Products, LLC. "With the expense of a BlackBerry device and the environments officers are exposed to daily, the OtterBox case not only protects the BlackBerry from damage, but protects the agency's investment."

These completely interactive cases are available for the Pearl™ 8110, 8120, 8130 Series; BlackBerry Curve™ 8300, 8310, 8320, 8330 Series; BlackBerry 8800 Series and other portable electronic devices. As part of the Defender™ Series line, cases offer three protective layers:

--  First, slide on the thermal formed protective clear membrane to
    safeguard screen and keyboard against scratching as well as dust and dirt*
    (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)
--  Second, snap together the hi-impact polycarbonate shell
--  Finally, wrap the silicone skin over the device to absorb bump and
    shock
    

OtterBox provides sheriffs, police chiefs, law enforcement officers and corrections officials the opportunity to increase efficiency by not having to return to their stations to research information; they are now able to work virtually anywhere and keep their device protected regardless of what the job brings.
