The Propensity for Violence

Violence affects a significant proportion of our population, threatening the lives of millions.  Aside from death, significant consequences of non‐fatal violence are injuries, disabilities, mental health and behavioral issues, reproductive and other health-based problems, as well as the overlying impact of violence on our social fabric.

While violence affects people everywhere, those living in low and middle‐income regions are at a substantially greater risk to experience multiple forms of violence, and by no surprise, over 90% of violent deaths occur here. What’s shocking, is if you research where mass school shootings are most likely to occur, you will be directed to small-town and suburban America, not to low- or middle-income communities experiencing the highest violence rates.

These small-town communities are seemingly idyllic places to grow up.  Typically, they have low crime rates, good school systems and a sense of community where everyone seems to know your name.   The phenomenon of these areas becoming targeted acts of violence is due to a variety of factors that include easy access to guns and the copycat effect of disturbed suburban and small-town teenagers emulating each other.  Active shooting violence is also blamed on the pressures of living in small towns that make it harder for disgruntled teenagers to adjust. "In small-town America, it's said everybody knows everybody, and that's well and good except when you don't want everybody to know what's going on with you," said James Alan Fox, a professor at Northeastern University who has been studying mass shootings for decades. "If things are going downhill for you, you did something wrong or someone did something wrong to you and some girl dumps you, everybody knows. So, it is much harder to get away from it. Experts say its attributes like these that cause small rural and suburban towns to be a breeding ground for the next school shooter. 

In Force Technology (“IFT”) prioritizes its efforts around rural school districts who make up (28.4% of the total school population and receive 45% grant funds with 26% spending on services like IN FORCE911). Since the beginning of 2021 and as of March 29th there were 117 mass shooting events according to Gun Violence Archive - an independent data collection and research group with no affiliation with any advocacy organization that monitors and records incidents from over 7,500 law enforcement, media, government, and commercial sources daily in an effort to provide near-real time data about the results of gun violence. 

The psychological, emotional and social health ramifications associated with the pandemic lockdowns have been significant and will take years to measure. Numerous studies have attempted to gauge the well-being of various age groups, with the most dramatic impact on children and young adults, who are more likely to develop PTSD, anxiety, depression and other symptoms of distress. According to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, from April through November of 2020 there was a 35% increase in children who needed mental health assistance compared to 2019 and an uptick in suicide attempts as well.

Unfortunately, social distancing and heightened security measures have negatively affected relationships among people as well as their perception of empathy toward others. According to L1ght, an organization that monitors online harassment and hate speech, cyberbullying has increased 70% over the past few months. The emotional and physical abuse children endure can result in emotional trauma and often lead to disruptive behaviors in school, including bullying, aggression and risk-seeking behaviors.

And history has shown that these above factors combined with family dysfunction, lack of supervision, access to firearms and mental illness has been the catalyst for countess acts of school violence in the past. 

Our nation’s schools should be safe havens for teaching and learning, free of crime and violence. IFT’s mission is simple and clear, we want to protect kids and school staff members by providing them with the ability to quickly notify and clearly communicate with law enforcement and first responders in the event of an emergency.  With access to building schematics, safety procedures or any other pertinent information, so school staff will be empowered to make better decisions during such an extreme act of violence. 

Please consider joining our mission to make a difference by saving lives!

Another Week, Another Mass Shooting

Investors and Prospective Investors,

At 11pm on April 15th,  police responded to the FedEx Plainfield Operations center in Indianapolis, IN.  Local law enforcement received a call for shots fired.  As officers responded, they arrived on-scene to an active shooter incident.  Within one to two minutes the gunman had taken his own life in addition to seven others who were pronounced dead at the scene.  According to Deputy Chief McCartt, Police arrived "to a very chaotic scene, with victims and witnesses running everywhere."

There are two important and valuable takeaways from this event.  First, as most studies suggest these active-shooting events are over in five minutes or less, on average.  Secondly, similar studies reveal that the sooner law enforcement arrives on scene, the faster the event ends.

IN FORCE911 is designed to reduce police response time from minutes to seconds.  Our proprietary law enforcement interface notifies officers in their patrol cars in precisely 4 seconds or less - shaving minutes off response time.  In addition, first responders receive real-time, detailed information from the onset of the threat, eliminating chaos and enhancing situational awareness.  IN FORCE911 is designed to save lives when every second matters. 

Statistically, this is the fifth mass shooting in five weeks, and the third in Indianapolis this year.  Gun Violence archive cites 147 mass shootings thus far in 2021.  A mass shooting is classified when there is a minimum of four victims.  Our nation is on very a dangerous and deadly path with no clear ending in sight.

IN FORCE911 Now in Rhode Island!

Dear Investors,

In Force Technology is excited to announce that we are expanding our school safety presence into the state of Rhode Island.  Effective today, April 12th, our team has signed a three-year deal with the Burrillville, RI School District - the first in the state. 

Burrillville is a rural community located in the northwest corner of Rhode Island, bordering both Connecticut and Massachusetts.  The school district is comprised of five schools; pre-k, two elementary, one middle, and one high school.  The Burrillville Police Department will also be partnering with IN FORCE911 to improve community and school safety.

This contract signing is important for two primary reasons: first, IN FORCE911 continues to effectively execute its "land and expand" sales strategy which will drive both ARR and growth.  Secondly, this signing demonstrates the persistent need for enhanced school safety measures, especially as students return to the classroom fulltime across the nation.  For these reasons and as the Company's CEO, we expect to see a steady rise in formal requests for proposals in the coming months.


Sincerely,

Brandon Flanagan

Why Acts of School Violence Will Continue to Increase

For students of Watson Chapel Junior High School in Pine Bluff, Arkansas yesterday marked the the first day of the school's return to in-classroom learning.  At approximately 10:00am gunshots rang out and a 15-year old boy was critically shot while he remains in critical condition.  During the shooting, the school went into lockdown and the assailant fled the building, but was later found by a police K9.  Not one day since the return to the classroom learning and our country has begun to experience the unwelcomed wave of targeted school violence.

Subject Matter Experts across the county have warned and cautioned that once students return to full-time, in-person learning that districts must be prepared to targeted acts of school violence.  The reality is we have a mental health crisis on our hands resulting from the cumulative effects of the pandemic.  Among the many factors several include:  prolonged social isolation, cyber bullying, spikes in domestic violence, increased rates of suicide and depression, and increased substance and alcohol abuse.

IFT's Senior Advisor, Dr. Joe Erardi, the former Superintendent of Newtown, CT who lead the recovery, rebuilding and re-opening of Sandy Hook, stated how important it is to recognize that public secondary schools without the pandemic create anxious students, staff and parents.  He explained that if you layer the pandemic on top of that, you have anxiety and the unknown at a level no one has ever experienced.  He continued to say, “anxiety leads to bad behavior, and off-centered behavior and leads young adults to really bad spaces.”  This year has been like no other, “we have all seen defiance across the country, sadly with celebration.  For kids that want to fall into that lane, have had the opportunity to watch and learn. Coming out of the pandemic, everyone needs to have a laser focus on student and school safety."

The time to Join Our Mission is now - before it's too late and the cascading effect of violence perpetuates across our nation.  I encourage you to consider investing now which will allow IFT to remain steadfast in its mission to enhance school safety and protect both staff and students from horrid acts of targeted violence!

 

Best always,

Brandon Flanagan

Welcome to In Force Technology

I would like to formally welcome you to the Campaign Page of In Force Technology, Inc! IN FORCE911 is an incredibly unique application because of two extraordinarily important life-saving features. The first, to reduce police response time to a critical event, like an active shooting, from minutes to seconds because time equals lives. Secondly, IN FORCE911 enhances communications with those experiencing the threat, directly with local law enforcement in real-time providing valuable information.   

When calling 911, it can take upwards of 5 minutes to simply route the call from the centralized answering point to the local, responding agency. The problem, of course, is that most active shooting events are over within 5 minutes while the national response time is 12.5 minutes according to the US DHS.  

I am inviting you to join IFT by investing in our socially redeeming mission. With your help, we will remain steadfast in our pursuit to protect school children and teachers from horrid acts of violence – and save lives!

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
