Nova Electric Immobilization Devices PLC Developing Less-Lethal Security
System for Schools
NOVA Electric Immobilization Devices PLC (Traded under the symbols: 4NE
(Berlin) and NELCF (US OTC) announced the development of a security system
primarily for schools to prevent perpetrators from harming students and staff
CHICAGO, Ill., March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - George Brown, CEO
of NOVA Security Group, Inc., made the announcement, "Our Chief of Research
and Development, Dr. John McDermit, is developing a prototype to deter
violence in schools." McDermit holds a PhD in Engineering Science and has
helped develop most of NOVA's technical devices for less-lethal weapons.
The objective in developing a product of this nature is to protect children
while not permanently injuring perpetrators. "Protecting children in our
public and private educational facilities should be a top priority for the
government. Children and parents of children have the right to assume students
and staff are safe at school," Brown said.
The system will disable a perpetrator temporarily using electric stun
technology without doing bodily or mental harm. This technology is currently
available for securing prisoners during a courtroom session in either a vest
or belt configuration. The belt and vest are activated by remote control and
are capable of disabling potentially harmful individuals regardless of size or
Dr. McDermit said, "We must use humane methods to apprehend criminals and
prevent atrocities from occurring. If we only save one life, the cost will be
well worth it."
The system is projected to cost about $360,000 for a 60-room school building,
securing all rooms and halls.
