About Bolo Stick
Bolo Stick LLC was founded by William J. Barna, a 31-year police officer in the aftermath of repetitive critical incidents occurring within schools, churches, medical facilities, manufacturing plants, and public venues around the United States. As a veteran officer and certified Police Academy Instructor, he saw the need for an instantaneous solution to barricade interior doors from unwanted intruders. Thus, the Bolo Stick was created to be a solid steel locking device capable of withstanding forces in excess of 2 tons while maintaining affordability to cash-strapped school systems and businesses. While Bolo Stick was initially developed with schools in mind, we've also seen it installed in churches, hospitals, and workplaces as companies increase efforts for workplace security in light of recent public shootings.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reports that 69% of the active-shooter incidents studied between 2000 - 2013 lasted less than 5 minutes. Bolo Stick was designed to serve as a barricade in the protection of human life against unwanted threats. The one-step activation and low attachment point on doors prevents unwanted entry and saves lives.
Bolo Stick is endorsed by NOCSSM, the National Organization of Church Security and Safety Management.
