FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gatekeeper Receives Order For Body-Worn Cameras
Abbotsford, BC April 14h, 2015 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (The “Company” or “Gatekeeper”) (TSX.V: GSI) is pleased to announce that it has received a purchase order for fifty (50) high-definition body-worn cameras from McCord Communications (“McCord”) located in Alabama, USA. McCord is a premier Motorola dealer in the region, and markets Gatekeeper’s XFORCE™ body-worn cameras and in-car video systems.
Mark Cotton, Senior Account Manager at McCord stated, “We are excited to be working with Gatekeeper, whose quality of product and service has proven to be outstanding. With interest in body-worn cameras and in-car video systems steadily gaining momentum in Alabama, this is an opportunistic time to partner with Gatekeeper and assist in driving sales of their XFORCE™ brand.”
The Company is also pleased to report that it has been diligently working on a revolutionary Evidentiary Video Management System, trade named XVAULT™, which is anticipated to be released to testing in the coming weeks. XVAULT™ was designed to support agencies with the implementation of their body-worn cameras and is the brain-trust of hundreds of man-hours and direct input from some of the top law enforcement agencies in North America, including Cleveland, Toronto, and Los Angeles Police Departments.
Doug Dyment, President and CEO of Gatekeeper commented, “We continue to receive numerous inquiries from police agencies throughout the United States, Canada, and from as far away as Australia. XVAULT™ is an effective video management system that ensures the integrity of the data is not compromised and the evidence chain is preserved.”
Recent events in South Carolina, where Police Officer Michael Slater was charged with the shooting and resulting death of Walter Scott, has continued momentum of public pressure for law enforcement officers to wear body cameras as standard equipment.
Gatekeeper has estimated that approximately 30 million law enforcement officers and security personnel could require body cameras over the next 5 to 7 years globally, which demonstrates a massive upside potential, and supports the Company’s vision of transitioning to a Software-as-a- Service organization.
Gatekeeper’s product line includes mobile video and GPS systems for school and transit buses, law enforcement officers and vehicles, as well as aircraft including United States Air Force and AC130 Gunships.
