Texas Hospital to Deploy Pro V2 Non-Lethal Security Devices

Lubbock Facility Purchases 40 Units, Training From Guardian 8

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2015) - Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), today announced that Covenant Health in Lubbock, Texas, has purchased 40 Pro V2 Enhanced Non-Lethal (ENL) defense devices.

The Pro V2 was designed by Guardian 8 to fill a need in professional security for an intermediate, multi-function tool that provides incident recording, non-lethal layered defense and two-way communication. The purchase includes training for 10 instructors. 

The Pro V2 is used by security personnel at hospitals and medical centers to defuse situations before they escalate. The device is the only one of its kind that addresses the need for a non-lethal response in sensitive environments such as hospitals.

"We are always looking for ways to improve security at our medical center to keep our patients and employees safe," said Steve Barker, Covenant Health Director of Security and Parking. "We feel the Pro V2 is cutting-edge technology that will make us a leader when it comes to security, while reducing our liability risk."

Hospital security teams using a Pro V2 successfully de-escalated incidents in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Platinum Event Services at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas used Pro V2 units to stop a crime in progress, and later to avoid a false claim of excessive use of force.

"Covenant Health joins a growing list of companies and institutions that are turning to the Pro V2 to protect their employees and the general public," said Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet. "The health care industry has realized the need for a defensive tool that is intermediate to unarmed and armed security officers."

The Pro V2 is designed for use in a variety of settings where a non-lethal response is preferred. They include hospitals, security providers, public venues such as entertainment and hospitality sites, university campuses, and government service providers. The latter was recently secured through a sole source partnership with ADS Tactical to provide the Pro V2 product line through the GSA Schedule 84.
