Enhance School Security Preparedness Right Now
While Gun Regulation Debates Rage On, School Administrators Can Increase
School Security With Mace Pepper Spray
SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 17, 2013
SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Administrators in every school
across the country can take a simple step to increase school security today by
adding Mace pepper spray to their safety plan. While debates about gun
regulation continue, Mace pepper spray is a non-lethal defense optionthat can
heighten any school's security preparedness.
"I wish our schools could be 100% safe for our kids. But since that's not the
case, I want every school in this country to be as safe as possible. Mace is a
safe, easy-to-train, easy-to-use, cost-effective, non-lethal method for
slowing down a potential attacker until first responders can arrive. In an
attack situation, Mace can save innocent lives," said John McCann, President
and CEO of Mace Security International.
Security experts believe that every school in this country needs a
comprehensive safety strategy. Mace can play an important role in a school's
safety plan because it empowers every adult in a school -- teachers,
principals, and cafeteria and maintenance staff -- to help keep kids safe.
Pepper spray can't stop a bullet, but it can slow down a potential attacker
until first responders can arrive.
The use of Mace is already part of the National Institute of Justice's
Continuum of Force guidelines for handling stressful or potentially lethal
oOfficer's presence (commanding and authoritative presence)
oVerbal commands (voice commands)
oPassive control (physically moving a person)
oPepper spray (To shut down vision and disturb the breathing)
oDefensive body tactics (hands-on tactics)
oImpact weapons (batons)
oLethal force (firearms)
"It's time to take proactive, non-lethal steps to protect our nation's kids,"
