DENVER, CO — (Marketwired) — 10/09/14 — Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. “Blue Line” (OTCBB: BLPG) (OTCQB: BLPG), a leader in providing regulatory compliance, security consultation and protection services to high-value asset industries, provided security and protection services at two recent high-profile cannabis-related music festivals in Colorado.
“Colorado’s entertainment culture has certainly changed since the legalization of recreational marijuana,” said Ricky G. Bennett, Blue Line’s Vice President of Operations & Compliance. “We’re seeing more public concerts and entertainment events focusing on the marijuana culture, and this presents some challenging security and protection environments for us. Our teams are trained to provide friendly, customer-centric protection services, while remaining compliant with the local, state and federal frameworks related to the cannabis industry.”
Blue Line provided security personnel at the September 20th Broke Breck Daze concert, presented by WeedStream and the Breckenridge Cannabis Club. The concert featured artists Steve Carlson and The Dank All-Stars at the Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center in Breckenridge, Colorado.
The Gypsy Jane Cannabis Music Carnival featured world-famous hip-hop artists Snoop Dogg & Tha Dogg Pound, Xzibit, E-40, and up-and-coming artists Tyga, Tinashe, and more. Blue Line provided armed, plain-clothes protection services to vendors at the event October 3rd and 4th at the Denver Mart, a premier venue for concerts, festivals, markets and trade shows.
“Events such as these provide challenging security considerations,” said Grant Whitus, Blue Line’s National Training Director. “We obviously want to maintain a strong security response for our clients and their assets, but our plain-clothes operators are able to remain discreet and avoid creating unnecessary distractions for the festival attendees. Fortunately, since our security personnel are primarily former law enforcement and military professionals, we have vast experience operating in these types of environments.”
Blue Line expects its presence at such events …read more
