  • College Campus Security

    Going away to college should be a happy time for our children. It is our job, as parents to make sure they are prepared for all kinds of experiences. Protecting them is a major concern.

    Keeping our kids safe

  • College "Gun Policy" under review

    Very interesting article in today's Tampa Tribune by Jerome Stockfisch.  The University of South Florida's gun policy is under review.  Not all students are comfortable carrying a firearm for protection.  Many parents are turning to non lethal ways to protect their collage age children.


    TAMPA — A Florida gun-rights group repeated its threat to sue any state university that hasn’t lifted a ban on students storing guns in their cars by Monday, a situation that could put the University of South Florida on the spot.

    The spring semester starts Monday, and a spokesman for Lehigh Acres-based Florida Carry Inc. said state schools are obligated to comply with a December appellate court ruling and notify students as they return to campus that such a practice is now legal.

    State law prohibits guns on university campuses, but many schools, including USF, took the statute a step further through campus policies.

    “The plan is that anybody that is not in compliance by Monday, we have the right to file at any time,” said Eric Friday, lead counsel for Florida Carry. “I could file today if I wanted to, but we gave everybody until Monday,” he said last week.

    A spokesman said USF’s policy banning guns in vehicles in campus parking lots was being reviewed. The campus shut down for winter break Dec. 23, reopening Jan. 2, but it appears the issue has not been addressed since prior to the break.

    On its general counsel’s website, USF lists Policy No. 6-009, “Weapons on USF System Property,” as “currently under review.”

    Florida Carry and a student at the University of North Florida sued that school in Duval County Circuit Court in October 2011, saying firearms restrictions are the exclusive purview of the state Legislature. A judge there threw out the suit, but a Tallahassee appellate court ruled that universities could not regulate guns on campuses.

    UNF president John Delaney said last month that the Jacksonville university would not appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.

    Identical regulations to those at UNF exist at the University of Florida and Florida State University in addition to USF. An FSU spokesman said the ruling rendered that university’s policy void; it could not be determined how UF was reacting to the appellate court decision.

    “They are denying students a fundamental right to defend themselves from criminal attack when traveling to and from school, and there is absolutely no excuse for it,” said Florida Carry’s Friday. “They’re going to come into compliance, and they’re going to do it now.”



  • Domestic Violence Increases during the Holidays ......How You Can Safely Help

    When it comes to feeling truly safe and free from harm, there is no place that should bring you that comfort more than your own home. But it's within homes that one of the most under-reported and scarring crimes takes place: domestic violence. This is a crime that impacts not just the person who is directly assaulted but often anyone else who is home, namely children or younger siblings.

    Just one look at the numbers, and other facts, and you will see how it is immediately staggering how much and how often domestic violence impacts our nation's population at large. That means people are effected no matter their race, income level, sexual orientation, etc... Just consider these:

    • 25 percent of women experience domestic violence in her lifetime
    • More than four million physical assaults and rapes of women occur because of their partners while men are the victims of about three million physical assaults
    • One in three women who is a homicide victim is murdered by a former or current partner
    • More than three million children witness domestic violence in their homes every year
    • More than 60 percent of these incidents happen at home

    But perhaps the most staggering fact is that a majority of domestic violence incidents are never reported. The reason for that is, often times, the victims feel helpless, fearful, and ashamed of what's happened to them. And they don't know what to do or who to turn to as a means of getting the help they require. That's where this article can assist either the victim directly or someone who is aware of the incident and wants to help in any way he or she can.

    One way that you can help right now is to check out the Verizon Wireless' HopeLine campaign. Essentially, they collect phones and accessories no longer in use and donate them domestic violence organizations across the United States. If you're interested in taking part, you can bring your phone to one of the stores or to a HopeLine drive. You can also send it to the company with a postage-paid label on it.

    HopeLine started back in 2001 as a two-fold initiative that aimed to provide wireless phones to domestic violence victims and make sure that any possible electronic waste was kept out of landfills. Since then, the campaign has expanded significantly and especially in the past few years. In 2012 alone, HopeLine launched an app for smartphone and tablet users while also adding text messaging to the phones they service. The app includes several helpful features for users including the ability to share success stories and text to donate to national domestic violence centers and agencies.

    Another way that you can assist domestic violence victims is through volunteering. A quick web search of simple terms such as "domestic violence victim volunteer" will bring you a slew of websites outlining the various ways you can help. You'll be able to sign up and work in different capacities that range from meal preparation assistance to taking part in some of the actual programs offered by the center or organization.

  • Keep your College Kids Safe

    If your daughter (or son) is about to go away to college or even just moving out of your house - here is some information that will keep them safe and secure as well as let you sleep more easily while they're away.

    If your daughter is presently attending college I'm sure you have heard all kinds of stories about her experiences at school. This was probably her first 'away from home' experience both for her as well as for you. She's told you about her friends, her classes, the food, even the sports.

    But what about the stories she didn't tell you. Not all teenagers like to openly talk to their parents - they know it all and feel like nothing can hurt them or happen to them. So, here are a few questions you might ask her: Does she feel safe in her dorm room or apartment? How about walking back from class or the library late at night? Or even just going out with the gang or to a fraternity party? What about the coed who was attacked on campus just walking home?

    Make sure that you get an honest answer because this means the safety of your child! Don't take 'I know what I'm doing' or 'yeah, yeah, yeah', or even the popular 'whatever' for an answer!

    Remember when you went to college? How often did you lock your dorm room? Too many kids left their doors wide open for anyone to enter. Been there, done that!

    Well, we've all heard the horror stories about coeds on campus being molested, attacked and even raped. And lately, there have been too many kids shot by some maniac on campus.

    Now is the time to send your daughter (or son) back to college feeling good about his or her safety. Just a simple thing like a Door Alarm or Motion Detector will alert her that someone is coming into her room. I know, her friends come in and out all the time but late at night when she wants to sleep, she should set her Door Alarm so she'll know of any intrusion. Even if it's just her friends, it's better to be safe than sorry.

    You should also consider giving your daughter a can of Pepper Spray which also comes disguised as a lipstick tube, key chain, a pen and even jogging weights. Any of these products are small and unobtrusive but will protect your child if she is attacked because one or two squirts of Pepper Spray in the face of an attacker will stop him in his tracks and give your daughter a chance to get away and call 911.

    Even if you don't have a daughter or son in college, many of us have nieces, nephews, grandchildren or even a neighbor who is attending school.

    Don't forget, you don't have to go away to school to face potential attackers - your kids could be living at home but they still have to face the dangers in the outside world.

    Let's face it - the world has become a dangerous place, especially for the young.

    Please keep your children safe by giving them some kind of protection. Don't allow them to become a crime statistic. Even though they think that they're 'all grown up' they still are our children.

  • Holiday Stocking Stuffers -- Protect Your Loved Ones

    Now that the Holiday Season is upon us, this is a wonderful time to reflect on all we have and be thankful for our friends and family. While shopping for gifts this season why not protect ourselves from criminals that lurk in parking lots ready to steal our gifts. Pepper Spray  is a very easy to use deterrent  to crime. Either before the holidays or as a gift, protect the ones you love.

    Pepper Spray normally comes in aerosol type containers, some no larger than a lipstick. Some are small enough to attach to a key chain. Most of these non-lethal sprays can be fired several times and have a range between 8 and 20 feet, depending on model and size.


    The size of the pepper spray unit generally determines its capacity.

    Pepper spray is not the same as mace or tear gas sprays.

    The popularity of these defense sprays has grown tremendously over the last few years due to the increase in violent crimes. Law abiding citizens are realizing that they have to depend on devices like this to protect themselves and their families. There are around 40 manufacturers of this type of spray, who offer various sizes, formulations and spray types. However there is only one chemical composition, which should be considered for use by the general public in a self defense situation.

    It is estimated that at least 15,000,000 Americans now carry a personal defense spray, the majority of which are OC pepper.



    The active ingredient in pepper spray is OC or oleoresin capsicum. The OC is derived from Cayenne peppers – some of the hottest peppers in the world. OC is a reddish-orange, oily liquid, insoluble in water. The OC agent is dispersed by the aerosol in a number of spray patterns depending on the model breezes and winds as much as fog and cone sprays

    One of the misconceptions about pepper spray is, that the higher the percentage, the hotter and better it works. In most cases this is not true, most of the best, fastest incapacitating sprays in the world are from 2-10%. The lighter the fluid, the faster it penetrates the membrane.

  • The Science Behind Pepper Spray

    The Science Behind Pepper Spray

    Thanks James Shaw for this great article 
    Pepper Spray has been used by law enforcement agencies and civilians for self defense for several decades. The basis for the pepper spray recipe, however, dates back much further – to ancient China and India. Packed with red chili pepper, warriors would use different methods to subdue an enemy temporarily. In Japan, ninjas were known to use black pepper to their advantage.
    Today, derivatives of the chemicals in peppers are still used to create modern forms of pepper-based defense systems. Although there have been several advances in the formulation of pepper spray over the past few decades, in general most sprays on the market contain the same chemicals found in natural peppers.
    In 1973, pepper spray containing oleoresin capsicum (OC) derived from hot peppers was developed as an aerosol spray. Its first widespread adoption was by the FBI, for use incapacitating animals and humans for temporary durations. Today, sprays containing CS (orthochlorobenzalmalononitrile) and CN (chloroacetophenone), are the types of pepper spray civilians walk with on an everyday basis.  There is a third pepper spray waiting to be introduced to the public called CR. Capsaicin & Dihydrocapsaicin are the main component in most forms of self defense spray, comprising about 80 to 90 percent of the liquid.
    Capsaicin, derived from hot peppers, is a mix of many chemical compounds called capsaicinoids. These are the chemicals that cause chili peppers to be so hot. OC is insoluble in water, meaning that it can be diluted by water into a concentration that is nonlethal yet still able to take down an attacker. This solution is then compressed in an aerosol spray can, not unlike that used for hairspray or spray paint. The careful mixture of water and potent chemicals allows the spray to exit the canister in the form of fine droplets. 
    When it comes out of the canister, the pepper spray solution is propelled at the attacker. The main ingredients cause eye irritation along with a host of other symptoms. The oleoresin capsaicin targets the trigeminal cells in the mouth, nose and stomach as well. These cells are connected to the production of endorphins, which act as a natural painkiller for the human body. This connection makes it possible for some people to eat hot habanero peppers without flinching, although the same people are still affected by the chemicals in pepper spray.
    After a targeted individual is sprayed with this substance, they will experience symptoms such as eyes swollen shut for up to 45 minutes, providing plenty of time for you to get away. Eating a hot pepper doesn't sting forever, though, and neither do the effects of pepper spray. There are no long-lasting or permanent effects of being sprayed with this device. 
    Pepper spray is unlike many other self defense products because its effectiveness relies solely on the chemicals contained in the canister. It requires no physical strength or training to be able to use correctly. For these reasons, carrying pepper spray is a safe and effective way to protect yourself.

  • Tips for Handling Bogus Phone Calls

    They may say that their car has broken down and they need to phone someone for help. They may pretend to be a workman, saying that they need to check your electricity or water. They might even claim to be from the council and that they are carrying out a local survey. Whatever reason a caller gives, you need to be sure that they aren't just trying to get into your home to steal something.
    There are around 12,000 incidents of "distraction burglary" each year, where callers get into homes and then steal cash or valuables while the occupier is distracted in some way. Sometimes they work in pairs, with one doing the talking while the other is stealing and they often target the elderly.

    Be on your guard every time the doorbell rings, or there's a knock at your door. Look out of your window to see who's there first and if you don't know who the person is, open the window slightly and talk to them that way, rather than opening your door. Alternatively, have a viewer fitted in your front door so that you can take a good look at who's there first. If your eyesight isn't so good, don't worry as you can now get wide-angle viewers to help you see better.

    Put the door chain or door bar on before opening the door and talk through the gap. You could even fit a small mirror to the wall next to the door so that you can easily see the person you are talking to. When the caller has left and you've closed the door, don't forget to unhook the chain so that any friend or relative you have given a key to can still get in.

    Make sure your back door is locked if someone knocks at your front door. Sometimes thieves work together with one coming in the back way, while the other keeps you talking at the front.

    Keeping the chain on the door, ask callers from the council or any other organization to pass through some identification. If you need your glasses to check this don't think it's rude to close the door and go and get them. A genuine caller won't mind. If you're still not sure, ask the caller to leave and tell them to write and make an appointment so that someone else can be with you the next time they call. The basic rule is if you don't know the person at your door don't let them in.

    As part of the Government's "Stop, Chain, Check" campaign, local councils, social services and Age Concern centers have further information they can provide to older people. They can also help with door viewers, chains and mirrors, and in certain circumstances, may be able to supply a personal attack alarm that connects through to a control center.
