Founder & CEO

Melissa Faith Hart spent 17 years in corporate America, mostly with Xerox. She was the North America Public Safety Strategist for Conduent; and she co-pioneered eDiscovery for the State of Colorado. eDiscovery is a technological innovation integrating 363 law enforcement agencies, from the District Attorneys’ offices through the court system. It is truly the first of its kind, making Colorado the only state in the nation to have such capabilities. Innovating again, Melissa and her executive team are bringing e-BodyGuard to the market. Together, these two solutions can finally create swift due process.

Melissa has served on multiple criminal justice non-profit boards, including Colorado Springs Teen Court, El Paso County Peace Officer Memorial committee, and most recently served as vice president of the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers from 2013 through 2015. She has a green belt in Lean Six Sigma business process and hails from her alma mater at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Massachusetts. Melissa is CJIS compliant, and she has been affectionately termed the “Law Enforcement Ambassador” within the technology space. Herself a survivor of violent crime, Melissa remains committed to her passion for saving lives and making a difference within the criminal justice community.
