Pro-gard Products Reaches Exclusive Distribution Agreement with SafeStop International, LLC
Broadens Portfolio of Vehicle Safety Equipment with Vehicle Anti-Theft Device
INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Pro-gard Products, LLC, a leading manufacturer and supplier of law enforcement vehicle equipment, announced today that it has signed an agreement to become the exclusive manufacturer and marketer of SafeStop Vehicle Anti-theft Systems. “This agreement brings a much sought-after product to Pro-gard’s growing lineup of vehicle safety products. Furthermore, the partnership combines two trusted and leading brands in the law enforcement industry to better serve our customers in an evolving market”, states Mike Navarro, General Manager at Pro-gard.
Nationwide, police vehicles are frequently stolen while left running unattended, resulting in dangerous chases, damaged vehicles, fatalities and or stolen weapons. SafeStop eliminates this risk. SafeStop is a patented, plug-and-play vehicle anti-theft system that offers hands-free operation and can be left on 24/7. SafeStop is intended for use in a wide range of vehicles, including those in law enforcement; homeland security; government agencies; utilities; delivery services; fire and rescue; and other such markets in which running vehicles may be left unattended.
SafeStop is a superior solution to competing products. “Other anti-theft devices in the market today can be shut off easily if a perpetrator knows where the hidden actuator is located. SafeStop works without such actuator. With SafeStop, simply remove the keys from your running vehicle and the immobilizer system is activated; re-insert the keys and the vehicle resumes normal operations. SafeStop cannot be bypassed by locating an activation switch.” explains Navarro.
Safestop’s patented system also offers integrated safety features that can help ensure protection of expensive and dangerous equipment, such as weapons. Added safety features can override trunk and weapon lock access in the absence of the ignition key. “As long as the system is activated and the ignition key is removed,” adds Navarro, “this anti-theft system eliminates worries that a weapon can be removed from the vehicle in the officer’s absence.”
