Spirit of Blue Selected to Benefit from Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement’s Efforts

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK – December 19, 2016 – The Spirit of Blue Foundation is excited to have been chosen to receive support from Mossy Oak’s newest initiative – Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement. The goal of Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement (S.O.L.E.) is to raise awareness and funds that will be divided equally among three existing 501(c)(3) organizations that already know where help is needed. Those organizations are Below 100, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the Spirit of Blue Foundation. S.O.L.E. will harness the respect for law enforcement and generosity of the outdoor sports community, along with manufacturers in the industry who create the products and services that sportsmen utilize in their sport.

“No group of people is more giving or grateful for those that serve for our safety than outdoors men and women. The outdoors industry has always stepped up to lead the charge in conservation and will no doubt get involved to help the great people of law enforcement and let them know that we support them and appreciate what they do every day,” said Toxey Haas, founder and CEO of Mossy Oak. “In the coming weeks and months, Haas Outdoors will put the marketing experience of Mossy Oak behind this effort. We hope to make S.O.L.E. as well known in the outdoors arena as possible. I predict the response from these great people and companies will be swift and generous.”

“We were overwhelmed when Mossy Oak first approached us with this opportunity” explained Ryan T. Smith, Executive Director of the Spirit of Blue Foundation. “It is tremendous to have an industry partner of this size take such a bold and meaningful stance on the protection of law enforcement officers and care for the families who have experienced a loss. This is the type of industry leadership that the law enforcement community needs to help overcome the challenges they have been faced with.”

For more information on Sportsmen Organized for Law Enforcement and the charities to be benefitted, go to www.soleamerica.org. Donations for S.O.L.E. are made through CREATE Foundation, a 501(c)(3) community foundation established to aid in the collection of charitable funds.

Mission Ready’s No-Contact LLC Announces First Order of Riot Shield Covers

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

VANCOUVER, B.C. – December 13, 2016 – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MRS) is pleased to announce the initial order of its No-Contact Riot Shield Covers for use in a military application. Developed and fulfilled through the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Protect The Force Inc. (“PTF”), the modest sub $9,000 order of 12 units represents the official commercial launch of this now market-ready product.

The No-Contact Shield cover, upon activation, releases a strong electrical pulse and an electrical shock sound and spark that deters an assailant. Similar to stun guns, the No-Contact technology is uniquely engineered into a textile composite that can be applied into any type of shield cover, including riot control and correctional facilities types as well as other form factors.

Requirements for this unique patented technology have been established through a product development effort that was initiated in FY2016 and has resulted in further intellectual property claims being filed by the Company. This order further validates No-Contact as a less than lethal technology that supports the unique mission sets of those who protect us.

The manufacturing of the No-Contact Shield covers will be done at the Company’s PTF Manufacturing Inc. facility in Jacksboro, TN and the key electronic components will be manufactured at the Company’s laboratory in Boston, MA.
Francisco Martinez, CTO states: “This small but fundamentally significant order is a milestone for the Company and the commercialization process. We strive to meet the changing demands being placed on military and law enforcement personnel and we believe this product provides them with another tool to help them successfully complete their mission. In addition to the application for this order, we have developed No-Contact Shield Covers for riot control units and for correctional facilities.”

Armor Express Announces Two Executive Appointments in Support of the Company’s Federal Law Enforcement Market Expansion Initiatives

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

CENTRAL LAKE, Mich., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Central Lake Armor Express, Inc. (“Armor Express”), a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-performance body armor solutions, announced today two strategic hires as the Company continues to expand its presence in the Federal Law Enforcement market. These hires follow the Armor Express’ previously announced $94 million Indefinite Delivery / Indefinite Quantity contract award with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Joining Armor Express as the new Director of Federal Sales is industry veteran David Jones. He has been brought onboard to lead the Company’s Federal Sales initiatives, which include sales strategy, client management and overall market expansion programs. Mr. Jones joins the Company after a distinguished 20-year career, having most recently served as Sales Director for Saxon Security, Inc. In this position, he was responsible for product marketing and sales, client service and channel management, working with prestigious customers including the U.S. Secret Service, FBI SWAT, FBI Violent Crimes Task Force (VCTF), Amtrak Police Special Operations, HIDTA (U.S. Federal Drug Task Force), and numerous police departments. Previously, Mr. Jones held the position of Sales Manager, Law Enforcement at Hesco Group, where he oversaw sales of hard armor products to both U.S. and Canadian Law Enforcement. Earlier in his career, he was the Business Development Manager at ALM Tech Corporation, responsible for setting sales and distribution strategies and securing strategic partnerships in support of the Company’s Federal, domestic law enforcement and Special Forces business units. Mr. Jones is a graduate of Penn State University, with a B.S. in Finance.

Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Jake Hayes as Federal Sales Manager. He will be responsible for developing and servicing Federal agency contracts and working with the team to expand the Company’s reach. Before assuming this role, Mr. Hayes served as Sales Specialist for the Federal Government market at Code 3, Inc., where he oversaw Government Services Agency (GSA) contracts and worked with procurement agents from various agencies, including the FBI, CIA, U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Marshals, DEA, National Park Service, NASA, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and U.S. Air Force. He also held sales management positions with Blue Eagle Investigations, One Call Care Management and Northstar Alarm Services. Mr. Hayes received his B.S. in Marketing from Eastern Illinois University.
Commenting on these appointments and the Company’s continued growth initiatives, Scott Wyatt, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated, “On behalf of our team, I would like to welcome both David and Jake to Armor Express. They both bring extensive experience servicing and protecting the Federal law enforcement community and have deep-seated relationships that will serve our Company and our customers well. These hires are especially meaningful given the timing, as we have recently expanded our customer base and are currently developing new body armor systems designed specifically for Federal officers. Knowing agency requirements and being in position to develop solutions that address their specific needs is paramount to our product development initiatives and positions us well for future opportunities.”
As federal agencies across the country seek to advance their capabilities, Armor Express has directed its resources to developing new and enhanced ballistic packages, carrier designs, hard armor plates, and accessories. This incorporates the most innovative technologies and industry best standards to better protect and enable officers to perform their jobs at the most optimal level. Thousands of federal agents nationwide have depended on Armor Express’ solutions, including those from the U.S. Marshals, Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA), U.S. Capitol Police (USCP), Office of Inspector General (OIG), U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. National Park Service, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Seattle Police SWAT and King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office SWAT Adopt the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. MAWL Laser Aiming System

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

November 21st, 2016 (Redmond, WA) – B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. Advanced Photonics, which specializes in laser systems for national defense, law enforcement, and aerospace is proud to announce that their Modular Advanced Weapon Laser (MAWL™) has been adopted as the new standard by both the Seattle Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), as well as the King County (WA) Sheriff’s Office Special Operations team.

These two teams provide tactical response services for over 2 million citizens in the greater Seattle area. Both SPD SWAT and KCSO SWAT explored multiple laser aiming systems before choosing the MAWL™ for their weapon pointing and illumination requirements in June 2016. The MAWL™ enables their SWAT officers to safely and effectively conduct high-risk tasks in complex low-light environments.

Officer Kirk Waldorf, Seattle Police SWAT Team R&D Lead said, “When my team decided to improve our night vision capabilities, we evaluated four of the best aiming devices available. The MAWL™ was without equal, and no other device offered the capabilities and functions of the B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. system. In the end, we decided not to compromise on quality or performance and chose the MAWL™ for the entire team.” Deputy Tony Mullinax, KCSO Special Operations said, “The MAWL™ has dramatically increased our ability to safely operate at night, allowing us to make better decisions about if and when to use force.”

As the first US law enforcement departments to adopt the MAWL™ using the FDA law enforcement variance for this system, the teams were trained on the advantages of the MAWL™ system by Presscheck Consulting and Tap-Rack Tactical, both of which provide specialized training in operating under night vision in tactical situations.

Matt Meyers, President of B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. said, “We’re excited that the first teams to adopt the MAWL™ are local law enforcement organizations that B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. has had relationships with since our founding in 1974. Both Seattle PD and King County Sheriff’s Office SWAT are highly regarded professionals who display proficiency in tactical operations, and we are honored that they chose us to meet their equipment needs.”

For more information on the MAWL™ and other B.E. Meyers & Co., Inc. products, please visit the company’s website at www.bemeyers.com, and the MAWL™ website at www.bemeyers-mawl.us, or contact sales@bemeyers.com.
