Protagged / Self-defense, Protective equipment


PROTAGGED An emergency spray that protects against criminals.

PROTAGGED, is a colour spray combined with a loud alarm signal and an emergency-call function. In case of an emergency, you can tag the offender with a paint that is very persistent and will stay on skin and clothes for about one week. This helps to find the perpetrator easier. By pressing both buttons PROTAGGED sends an emergency- call signal to the police automatically. This e-call will also send your GPS-position to the police station for rapid findings.

You can personilse your route home. When you deviate from your route, PROTAGGED will automatically send an e-call.
