DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/14/16 --Blue Line Protection Group, Inc. (OTCQB: BLPG), a leading security, transportation and risk mitigation solutions provider for financial institutions servicing the legal cannabis industry, today announced that it continues receiving international media attention with its appearance on British television broadcaster Channel 4.
"No other protection agency serving the legal cannabis industry has received the level of positive national and international exposure that Blue Line has," said Daniel Allen, Blue Line's CEO. "That's a testament to our level of service and our commitment to an industry with its roots in Colorado that's catching fire across the nation."
The six-part series, entitled "The Highs and Lows of the Weed Business," features Blue Line security professionals in the course their duties providing protection and transportation services to its legal cannabis and financial institution clients. Blue Line manages security operations for Colorado's most prominent lawful cannabis dispensaries and cultivation facilities and helps financial institutions comply with their federal "know your customer" requirements through licensed, on-site compliance investigations services.
Channel 4 began transmitting as a British public-service broadcaster back in 1982. The station has grown and is now widely available outside the United Kingdom in countries such as Ireland, Switzerland and Belgium. Since it commissions all of its programming from independent sources, Channel 4 has helped spawn an entire industry of production companies developing original content for air.
Part three of the series features Blue Line Chief Operations and Compliance Officer Ricky G. Bennett providing a sneak peek of Blue Line's new operations headquarters based in Denver, CO. "The legal cannabis phenomenon in America, and here in Colorado specifically, has really piqued the interest of people around the world," said Mr. Bennett. "Our new facility, with our bank-grade vault and cash processing capabilities, provides us a showcase for media and industry professionals to meet and get the inside scoop on legal cannabis services and compliance operations."
"We're pleased to have international media recognize Blue Line Protection Group for its role in helping to establish responsible and transparent operations for the legal cannabis industry here in Colorado," said Michael Jerome, Blue Line's Vice President of Media and Business Development. "Thoughtful, in-depth productions such as this provide our international audience a flavor of what it's like to serve an industry that's struggling to find legitimate financial opportunities."
In addition to British Channel 4, Blue Line has been featured in international media from Spain, Germany, Japan, Mexico and France, as well as prominent national media organizations across the United States. The Channel 4 series was produced by Attention Seekers, a production company and creative agency based in London.
