Revealed! Who Benefits Most Using Personal Defense Devices?

Aug 17, 2007
Who are likely targets for criminals? You would be correct, to some extent, if you answered "everyone." There is no one person that is immune from crime, but there are segments of our society who stand a greater chance of a run in with a criminal or criminal act, than some others.

These more likely segments of our society, are a group that would benefit most by being familiar with ways to avoid being crime's targets. It is highly recommended that this group [as should all] become familiar with crime through crime reports and follow the recommendations contained therein.

Obtaining some personal self-defense devices and learning how to use this technology is likewise, recommended.

"Personal defense technology? Sounds expensive. Is it?," you ask. No, it is'nt in most cases.

To properly equip oneself with the necessary personal defense technology does not have to cost you an arm and a leg.

Well, who are the people that make up this segment of our population and why are they more vulnerable?

They are more likely to be a victim of crime for various reasons including there age, their occupation, the time of day they work, their daily routines [e.g. doing things at the same time, in the same place, in the same way] and the areas in which they live. This list is not inclusive and there are plenty of combinations of scenarios that would also make a person more vulnerable to crime.

Here is a short list of examples of groups of people and their occupations that would benefit from modern personal self-defense technology:

Senior citizens
Night Shift Workers
Taxi drivers
Disabled persons
Delivery drivers
Babysitters
Postal employees
Bar maids
Joggers
Tourist
Retail clerks
Students
Health workers

The above list is far from exhaustive. Why these certain groups are included in the list should be obvious to anyone giving it some thought.

It would be wise for our communities to get the word out to these segments of the population about their increased risk at being victims of crime and the availability of personal defense technology. But, judging on past experience, we know that is not always going to be the case.

It is for this reason that we also recommend everyone to get involved on a voluntary basis to support your local police and sheriff's office and neighborhood watch programs.

It is recommended for every citizen to educate themselves and others about the ins and outs of crime and how to keep the public from becoming victims and not becoming statistics in a crime report.
