Stop Assaults on Women Cites New Report On Most Dangerous College Campuses As Need For Better Self-Protection Such as The “Attacker Blaster” Personal Protection Alarm from Brite-Strike Technologies
Plymouth, MA, September 20, 2010 -- Stop Assaults on Women http://www.stopAOW.org an all-volunteer, non-profit organization devoted to preventing assaults on women through education and awareness, is calling attention to the just released report on the country’s most dangerous college campuses by The Daily Beast -- www.dailybeast.com -- Internet-based news source.
According to The Daily Beast web site, “For The Daily Beast’s second-annual ranking of the most dangerous colleges in the U.S., we pored over the three most recent calendar years of campus security and crime data (2006-2008) compiled by the U.S. Department of Education, as well as the FBI and the Secret Service, in conjunction with the Clery Act, the federal mandate requiring all schools that receive federal funding to disclose crime information annually.”
Officials at Stop Assaults on Women point to the report as concrete proof that college students need better personal protection, especially at urban and inner-city institutions. The report’s most dangerous colleges are primarily located in America’s largest cities, including the greater Boston area, Baltimore, and Newark, NJ. Several of the best-known colleges were ranked very highly in the report including Tufts University (#1), University of Baltimore (#2), Harvard University (#3), and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (#5).
“Campus police presence is always a major factor in controlling on-campus violent crimes, but the first line of defense is a protected student. There are a variety of personal protection devices and techniques available to students, and we have found that The Lightning Strike Personal Protection System® from Brite-Strike Technologies, Inc. http://www.brite-strike.com is very effective, they said.
The Lightning Strike features the “Attacker Blaster” high-decibel shrieking alarm and is designed specifically – by police officers – to reduce incidents of assaults and overall violence against women. More than a product, it’s an overall protection program for students to utilize on campus, jogging or walking, or just going to their car in a dark parking lot.
The System includes a high-intensity tactical flashlight specifically designed as a personal safety device for women and a personal alarm. Brite-Strike Technologies is making the Lightning Strike Systems and Personal Protection Alarm available to campus police forces, and through college bookstores at specially discounted prices. A portion of every PPA sale is earmarked for Stop Assaults on Women. The protection devices are ideal fund-raisers for sororities and fraternities and any charitable organization concerned with the protection of citizens, especially college students.
