Not only that, but there is usually a higher probability of sexual harassment in college – mostly of female students by their male counterparts. Since being in possession of weapons is prohibited in schools, Personal Alarms become an excellent choice of self protection for many would-be victims. They are non-lethal yet have a sound that will unexpectedly startle any bad guy who wants to do harm to you thereby giving you time to get away.
Oftentimes there is a tendency for male students to band together, which poses an even greater threat to coed students in the dorm or while walking at night, on or off campus. For additional protection coeds should walk with at least one other person, especially at night. Most potential attackers are hesitant to bother even a small group of people.
