Even Though Gun Regulation Debate Rages on, School Administrators Can Enhance Their Security Plans Right Now with Mace Security International, Inc.

SOLON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- While debates about gun regulation continue, there is a simple step that administrators can take today to increase security in schools. Mace pepper spray can enhance the safety plan in every school in this country.

With the wide range of delivery tools now available, non-lethal defense from Mace pepper spray can heighten every school's security preparedness.


"I wish our schools could be 100% safe for our kids. But since that's not the case, I want every school in this country to be as safe as possible. Mace is a safe, easy-to-train, easy-to-use, cost-effective, non-lethal method for slowing down a potential attacker until first responders can arrive. In an attack situation, Mace can save innocent lives," said John McCann, President and CEO of Mace Security International.

Security experts believe that every school in this country needs a comprehensive safety strategy. Mace can play an important role in a school's safety plan because it empowers every adult in a school -- teachers, principals, and cafeteria and maintenance staff -- to help keep kids safe. Pepper spray can't stop a bullet, but it can slow down a potential attacker until first responders can arrive.

The use of Mace is already part of the National Institute of Justice's Continuum of Force

guidelines for handling stressful or potentially lethal situations:

  • Officer's presence (commanding and authoritative presence)
  • Verbal commands (voice commands)
  • Passive control (physically moving a person)
  • Pepper spray (To shut down vision and disturb the breathing)
  • Defensive body tactics (hands-on tactics)
  • Impact weapons (batons)
  • Lethal force (firearms)

"It's time to take proactive, non-lethal steps to protect our nation's kids," McCann explained.
