Non-lethal weapon

A non-lethal weapon is a device that is designed to put people in dangerous situations, causing them to feel pain or suffering powerful enough to stop them from acting violently, but in a way that does not endanger their lives under normal conditions of use. Tear gas, rubber bullets, batons, water cannons, pepper spray, and tasers are examples of such weaponry.

As a result, the term "non-lethal weapon" is specified because the weapon's objective is not to kill, and if it were referred to as "less lethal" or "less than lethal," as others prefer, the officer might feel justified in killing. As a result, the term "non-lethal" is preferred.

What advantages do non-lethal weapons provide to security firms?

The first is the fact of life preservation, which is linked to the second: avoiding contractual civil liability. Without a doubt, a security company's expenditures are reduced by not being involved in lawsuits. On the other hand, it's worth recalling that in Colombia, a psycho-physical examination is required in order to own a weapon; if the security guard fails to pass it, the company loses money. Let me offer you an example: if we take a sample of 1,000 guards and 3.9 percent fail the psychophysical exam, the corporation will lose roughly 600 million pesos in earnings.

Weapons that are supplied to surveillance businesses as gifts from the government do not constitute part of their fixed assets. Non-lethal weapons, on the other hand, become fixed assets of the companies because they do not belong to the state but to individuals who acquire them. As a result, the businesses expand. That includes both financial and operational advantages.

Non-lethal weapons, on the other hand, have the biggest advantage of assisting the surveillance service in becoming a reactionary one rather than a preventative one.

What are Teaser?

The handheld tasers (also known as stun guns or a conducted energy weapons) are a tools you should keep on your utility belt when considering use of force choices. This small personal safety device uses high-voltage electricity to provide non-lethal defense, briefly incapacitating your target. The electrical voltage successfully "stuns" the culprit, triggering involuntary muscle spasms to cause them to fall. More than 15,000 police enforcement and military agencies are thought to deploy tasers in the line of duty, and the number is growing every day.

BENEFITS OF OWNING A TASER

  • In a dangerous situation, it buys you time :One of the most beneficial features of personal safety equipment is their ability to assist you in controlling and manipulating potentially dangerous situations without resorting to excessive force. The capacity to momentarily incapacitate an aggressive, confrontational, or dangerous person can put you in control of the situation, allowing you to flee, seek for help, or, if required, use lethal force.
  • It Reduces Injury Risk: It should come as no surprise that self-defense weapons like tasers can help lower injury risk when compared to lethal-force weapons. Despite their excellent ability to apprehend, CEDs only cause minor or no damage to the great majority of persons (7 percent, according to one research). Of course, using a taser to disable a perpetrator's ability to use a weapon or throw a punch can assist limit injuries to the apprehender.
  • It Allows You to shoot from a Safe Distance: You’d be surprised to see how far some taser devices can shoot. For example, some professional models can be shoot from as far away as 35 feet , allowing you to stay out of harm’s way while calming the situation and keeping yourself safe.
  • It's less expensive, easier to learn, and safer than a handgun: Tasers are a better option for folks who are new to self-defense because they have fewer laws and a lot more user-friendly design than handguns. CEDs don't require lengthy certificates or instruction to learn, yet they do demand adequate training and rely on accurate aim and precision. Mini tasers can also be obtained for about $15, making them more accessible to the general public. They are also a preferable choice for folks who are not properly educated in personal or community defense strategies because they are non-lethal.
  • It immobilizes even the most obstinate suspects: Tasers can immobilize a larger number of suspects than other non-lethal force options. They can, for example, stun persons who are inebriated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, who can fight or ignore pain, and who may not respond to other types of self-defense, such as pepper spray.
