Bolo Stick is designed to save lives
According to data from the FBI, the United States experienced 50 Active Shooter incidents in 2016 (20) and 2017 (30). The result was 221 people killed and 722 people wounded totaling 943 casualties. Similarly, there were 40 Active Shooter incidents in the years 2014 and 2015 resulting in 92 killed and 139 wounded totaling 231 casualties. Schools are are a prime target for these violent incidents due to the large number of people in a small area combined with typically weak security. We owe it to ourselves and our children to increase school security and protect our schools from active classroom shooters.
Developed and designed by 31-year police force veteran and substitute teacher William Barna, the Bolo Stick solves one of the biggest problems facing the nation today—violence in schools and the workplace. It works off of a round-peg-round-hole philosophy, and it is free of electrical and mechanical components. The Bolo Stick lockdown device can be deployed under the most stressful of situations, and by anyone at any age. There is no specialized information or training needed, making this the simplest and most effective form of classroom barricade security devices, essential equipment for the L (lockdown) in ALICE training. The simplest way to combat an active shooter in a school or other public building is to deny them room access by utilizing the Bolo Stick door barricade.
