(the "Company") (OTCQB: BFDI) (OTCBB: BFDI), a leading public safety technology service provider of fully integrated traffic safety solutions, vehicle upfitting, and rugged mobile technology, is pleased to announce its partnership with Trimble Navigation Limited, the largest Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) provider in the country. This partnership is intended to meet a growing need from Federal agencies to reduce operating costs, improve driver safety and comply with Federal directives like Executive Order 13514, which require greenhouse emissions to be measured, reported and reduced.
"Given today's fiscal landscape, agency operating budgets are under intense scrutiny and many are being cut by double digit numbers," stated C.B. Brechin, CEO of Brekford. "As the debate over utilization rates continues, there is an increasing amount of pressure being placed on Federal agencies to cut costs. Through our partnership with Trimble, Brekford will help agencies better manage mileage, idle time and fuel usage in an effort to reduce emissions as well as fuel costs, which should result in billions of dollars saved annually."
