It's like buying a firearm, you have to be mentally prepared to use it, otherwise, you won't.
Lubbock, TX (PRWEB) January 2, 2009
Violence and crime is an unfortunate occurrence for many people around the United States who become nothing more than statistics for reports that are largely ignored. Former police officer, Dusty R. Staggs, understands that victims are not faceless numbers, but are actually people who can feel and fear.
When Staggs decided to start his own business, he went with something that would help people. "I wanted to find a way for people to protect themselves," he began. "In certain parts of the country, there is a larger crime wave than others, but this gives everyone the opportunity to have access to the same equipment."
In November 2008, Staggs launched http://www.DBar-SafetyTech.com. The website specializes in personal safety products such as stun guns, diversion safes, alarms, knives and other items that can ensure one's safety, though Staggs notes that these weapons, though haven't caused any deaths, should still have a high level of precaution.
"For the people who purchase these, they need to understand how to properly use it," said Staggs. "It's like buying a firearm, you have to be mentally prepared to use it, otherwise, you won't."
One such measure that Staggs has taken is adding a blog to his website. DBar-SafetyTechInfo.com has a wealth of information and utilizes Staggs' experience as an officer to give people hints on how to prevent attacks in the first place:
"We'll have different articles on safety in public places like parking lots, ATMs, as well as the home," he said. "We'll have also tips for the home and product reviews and build situations that will help people realize the variables of a life-or-death situation."
Though violent crimes may continue to decrease as these self-defense weapons become more accessible, the fact that they happen to begin with is what concerns Staggs the most, yet he assures people that he's here to help.
"People need to know what these products will do and what they won't do," he said. "As time goes on, I'll add fire alarms and other fire prevention items, but the general safety of the public is my main concern right now."
