International Interest in Pro V2 Affirms Worldwide Move Toward Non-Lethal Security and Digital Documentation
SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/15 -- Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced today that it will send a third party representative to India to present the Pro V2 to the country's police and security forces. According to the representative, India has more than 1.5 million police officers, 500,000 home guards and 5 million security officers, almost all of whom are unarmed.
Dignitaries in India recently expressed interest in non-lethal weapons and digital documentation at the 43rd All India Police Science Congress, which was held in March of 2013 and comprised 80 senior police officers, criminologists, forensic scientists and academics from all over India. They deliberated on issues in the police force, including the need for police to provide more than just oral testimony as evidence, the potential for non-lethal weapons to reduce the use of excessive force, and the lack of data collection. The Pro V2 solves all of these issues as an enhanced non-lethal [ENL] device, which has a Bluetooth® alerting platform integrated with its non-lethal technologies, and includes an officer-perspective video capture system.
"This presents an enormous opportunity for widespread adoption of the Pro V2. The fact that leaders in India and other countries are interested in equipping their officers with enhanced non-lethal tools demonstrates that a world standard is emerging for accountability of both parties in a conflict," said Guardian 8 CEO Steve Cochennet. "India's police force has indicated that it wants to improve, and doing so will build trust in their communities. We are engaging them now to pursue those efforts by implementing the Pro V2."
Guardian 8's representative, Inder Sharma, is a serial entrepreneur with 20 years of experience in India and familiarity with its security industry. He has solicited the interest of the Bureau of Police Research and Development, the Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI) and other state government agencies. Police officers and security guards are near equivalent in India, making the Pro V2 an ideal tool for both public and private security in the country.
