According to data from the National Crime Survey and the Bureau of Statistics, 73 percent of women and 89 percent of men will be a victim of violent crime in their lifetime. Workplaces have barriers in place to keep employees safe on the job, but out in the field or during personal time threats become more of a factor. Wearing the TigerLight Defense Alert Device on one’s hand while walking to a vehicle alone or exercising solo, or keeping it nearby at home could save one’s life. The D.A.D. includes a blinding flashlight, military-grade pepper spray and a silent Bluetooth GPS beacon that alerts the user’s emergency contact list, as well as everyone within a mile who has downloaded the TigerLight app that the person needs help.
