BE ON THE LOOK OUT -- BOLOCARDS COLLECTOR CARDS AID LAW ENFORCEMENT

 BE ON THE LOOK OUT -- BOLOCARDS COLLECTOR CARDS AID LAW ENFORCEMENT
 DAVIE, Fla., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- "Be on the look out" (or "BOLO" for short) was once a phrase used only by law enforcement officers. Until now.
 Soon BOLO will be a warning heard throughout America: not only in the police stations and on police radio, but in the malls, the halls, and the schools as well, wherever people meet.
 BoloCards Inc. is currently developing a series of Be On The Look Out Collector Cards, or BoloCards, picturing current fugitives at large wanted by law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, Secret Service, state police, and local police and sheriff's departments. Every other month, BoloCards will release a new series, including an average of 16 new fugitives per state.
 Priced at a very affordable 99 cents (suggested retail), the randomly selected BoloCards Crimefighter Package will appeal to collectors of all ages.
 Unlike controversial cards on the market that have glorified criminals or sex fiends of the past, BoloCards will be not only a collectible, but also a tool for aiding law enforcement.
 Each of the millions of sets of BoloCards in the public's hands means another pair of eyes watching for America's most wanted fugitives. BoloCards will aid the entire law enforcement community nationwide, at no cost to any law enforcement agency.
 "Since we want to help get bad guys off the street," says BoloCards President Mary Jo Spinella, "we grant permission to collectors to photocopy their BoloCards to share with their friends. Maybe we'll even see BoloCards up on the wall at the local post office."
 Each BoloCard will include the following information:
 -- (1) Photo and description of fugitive: height, weight, age,
 race, eye color, hair color, place last seen, etc.
 -- (2) Brief description of crime
 -- (3) Rewards offered, if available
 -- (4) Jurisdiction in which wanted, and instructions for notifying
 police and/or CrimeStoppers
 BoloCards will establish a 24-hour "Arrest Update" Infoline, from which collectors will be able to obtain the current status of any pictured fugitive.
 Other card series to be launched in 1992 include: "TopCopCards" commemorating award-winning law enforcement officers, and "EmblemCards" featuring emblems, patches, and badges of more than 8,000 different law enforcement jurisdictions.
 BoloCards will contribute, on a monthly basis, a percentage of wholesale sales to be divided among various law enforcement organizations.
