    It Can Happen Here, There, and Anywhere

    A broken nose, eye socket, and a hearty insurance claim to boot...

    Of all the places for a security officer to get assaulted, you wouldn't think a horse racing track would be one of them.

    But that kind of thinking (assuming violence can't happen "here") inevitably leads to someone getting hurt, right?


    Just look at this recent case in New York where an unarmed officer was assaulted and severely injured by an aggressor for no apparent reason. The suspect even stole the security officer's car following the assault.

    In the past few days, Homeland Security has warned shopping malls in the United States to be on alert after a Somali militant group released a video calling for attacks on American shopping centers.

    Using De-Escalation Technology to Reduce Violence in America

    Posted by Steve Cochennet on Mar 3, 2015


    As a CEO, I’m most excited by companies that are using technology to make the world a safer place. And remarkably, I’ve been privileged enough to have been involved in two different companies that have been able to combine security and technology to create a better world.

    Digital Ally helped law enforcement departments upgrade their incident recording capabilities. At the time, believe it or not, police cars had big, heavy VCR recorders in their trunks that needed to be wired to the dashboards. Digital Ally pioneered the deployment of the digital dashcam in a way that made it accessible and affordable, leading to widespread adoption. This technology is now used in the majority of police cars today.

    So, naturally, I couldn’t stop there.

    It hit me recently while I watched one of our intense instructor certification courses. The moment in front of me had been five years in the making.

    I spend many hours touting our product to anyone who will listen. I might speak with hospital leaders about the impact of our Pro V2 device on employee safety, cutting risk management and litigation costs. I might speak with a school executive about how the enhanced non-lethal devices like the Pro V2 are a new piece of the puzzle for campus security – a new way to help protect students and staff, an intermediate response between armed and unarmed campus security.
