Securatex New Account Win in Milwaukee Attributed to Pro V2 Offering
Security provider using enhanced non-lethal devices in mixed retail/state office setting.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Sept. 16, 2014 – Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), and Securatex, a Chicago-based private security provider, announced the successful deployment of the enhanced non-lethal Pro V2 at a new client site in North Milwaukee. Securatex’s newest client, a retail shopping mall with eighty tenants and a state government office as the site anchor, was won on the strength of the Pro V2 in providing incident recording from the officer’s perspective.
“The Pro V2 gives security providers an edge to differentiate themselves, and while doing so, Securatex is setting a new standard for the entire industry,” said Steve Cochennet, Guardian 8 CEO. “Security is not invisible; clients see when they are being protected by confident officers who are prepared to handle every-day situations.”
Bill Heiman, Chief Operating Officer for Securatex, explained that the client was looking for a new security provider following a number of complaints about visitor safety. With incidents including minor altercations and auto break-ins, tenants felt the previous security provider did not have the proper tools to address the issues.
“Our officers are feeling confident and appreciate having these devices. They are not afraid to do their jobs,” Heiman stated. “The Pro V2 allows a natural progression through the force continuum. It fills the gap for the most likely scenarios.”
Heiman said deployment has been so well received that the retail center has received communications from tenants thanking them for the new security service.
“We’ve been able to do a lot of good there. The tenants are extremely happy,” Heiman said.
Securatex serves retail businesses, education, healthcare, as well as industrial and corporate campuses throughout the Midwest with 30 years of experience in private security.
