Violence is a fact of too many people’s lives. Healthcare workers are 5x more likely to experience workplace violence than their peers in other industries and are assaulted more often than police officers and prison guards. In U.S. colleges, 23% of women and 5% of men report sexual assault. Other forms of violence can be far more random. We may not be able to eradicate violence, but we can give people the tools to live a fear-free life.
POM Safe combines a physical device with an app that bypasses the need to get your phone out and call 911.
Our device allows people to deter, de-escalate, and dispatch help with just a tap. It instantly and discreetly connects people with the help they need, when and where they need it.
It’s also much more than a simple tool to connect people with first responders—we believe in deterrence and de-escalation, and have designed the POM Safe with these outcomes in mind. Users in a potentially violent situation can deter or de-escalate by sending a fake phone call to their phone or opening a one-way voice call. And, in the event of an emergency, help is just a button tap away.
