June is National Safety Month, and it’s gotten us thinking a lot about the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." In our lives, we tend to focus on the big threats and how we can prevent or at least minimize them from affecting us. But how often do we think about the little things we could be doing to every day to keep ourselves safe?
We sat down with Joelle Rozek, recent MBA grad from Pepperdine University in Los Angeles and TASER Self-Defense intern (now full-time Business Analyst!), and her mom Jeanne to learn more about their journeys with self-defense and how TASER products fit into their lifestyle.
Movies and TV shows have taught us that tucking your device straight into a pocket or waistband is the cool way to carry. It may look cool, but safety experts will tell you that, like many things in Hollywood, you should ignore the cool way to do something and use the safe way instead.
COVID-19 has upended all of our lives in some way or another. Shelter-in-place orders have created a lot of uncertainty, and being homebound is throwing a lot of old routines out the window.
But while today’s “new normal” looks a lot different than it did a few months ago, one thing hasn’t changed: the need to keep you and your family safe and healthy. And even though you’re stuck at home, there are plenty of things you can do to put a new spin on old habits and be prepared for when the world opens up once more.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, but here at TASER Self-Defense, we urge everyone to be prepared no matter the time of year. Stay strong, think ahead and educate others on how to prevent violence.

This year, ensure that when you head out, you're leaving your home in the safest shape possible with our holiday travel checklist.
With icy sidewalks, chilling winds and numb hands – it’s as important as ever to get ready with self-defense in-mind.
It is an unfortunate fact that certain crime rates spike during the holidays. According to Dr. Janet Lauritsen who referenced the National Crime Victimization Survey in a Vice interview, robbery and personal larceny increase by approximately 20-percent during the month of December.
