Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) yesterday announced that it, "has entered an agreement with VGroup Concepts of Orlando, Fla. The partnership will create a demo showcase of the company's NForce CMR1000 software solution and radar device from January, 2017, through January, 2018. The parties furthermore agreed to install the NForce CMR1000 solution and radar device at VGroup entertainment properties around the Orlando area before the end of the term with the ultimate goal of establishing a "safe districts" initiative.
"The events of June 12, 2016, at the Pulse Nightclub are forever etched in the hearts and minds of the citizens of Orange county, the United States and the world. It was the deadliest attack by a single shooter in U.S. history. Our partnership with Patriot One is a positive step toward our goal of making, and continuing to make, the city of Orlando, Orange county, Florida, its residents and all of our visitors safe in the tourist entertainment capital of the world," said Jeff Gitto, VGroup Concepts' operating managing partner.

In addition, Mr. Gitto is a named stakeholder to the City of Orlando's nightclub task force charged with making the city's entertainment district as safe as it is vibrant, which drives him to seek out new safety and security solutions for the community and business owners and which helped lead him to Patriot One's NForce CMR1000 solution.
Martin Cronin, chief executive officer and a director of Patriot One Technologies, noted: "We are very excited to partner with VGroup Concepts with our NForce CMR1000 pilot program and to further help the City of Orlando, Orange County, and the great State of Florida's desire to create the world's safest entertainment centre.
