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,” said VGroup Concepts Operating Managing Partner, Jeff Gitto.

“It was the deadliest attack by a single shooter in United States 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.” 

Mr. Gitto is also a founder and active member of the Church Street Revitalization project for Downtown Orlando; through a joint venture focused primarily on the Church Street Entertainment District.

In addition, Gitto is a named stakeholder to the City of Orlando Nightclub Task Force charged with making the city’s entertainment district as safe as it is vibrant.

This responsibility 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, CEO & Director of Patriot One Technologies, Inc. notes, “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 center.”

“Our number-one goal at Patriot One is to offer a solution that works with today’s security professionals to help deter, detect and defend against active threats of violence on innocent citizens everywhere.”
