Universal Guardian's Cobra StunLight(TM) Shipped to Nation's Presidential Security Detail

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Universal Guardian Holdings, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: UGHO) , an emerging global leader in non-lethal protection products, integrated transportation security systems and strategic security services to protect against terrorist, criminal and security threats to governments and businesses worldwide, today announced that its Shield Defense subsidiary has shipped Cobra StunLights(TM) to an undisclosed nation's Presidential Security Detail.

"Cobra StunLights(TM) are being deployed into this country's Presidential Security Detail to provide immediate effective offensive and defensive use-of-force options in high-risk environments where the reaction window is critical," stated Michael Skellern, Universal Guardian's CEO. "Split-second decisions coupled with precision responses are essential to protect the president and innocent bystanders in such situations," concluded Mr. Skellern.

"The use of the Cobra StunLights(TM) by a Presidential Security Detail validates the need for a balanced security response in highly-charged and crowded environments where security operatives might use lethal force, when a non-lethal response may be more appropriate," stated Shaunt Hartounian, Shield Defense Regional Director. "Due to security reason's we can not disclose the identity details of this Presidential Security Detail," added Mr. Hartounian.

The Cobra StunLight(TM), the "Truly Non-Lethal Alternative" to potentially dangerous less-than-lethal weapons currently on the market, replaces the standard police flashlight with a rugged, high intensity LED flashlight and provides escalating non-lethal use-of-force options. The Cobra StunLight(TM) instantly illuminates its target and launches a laser-aimed stream of OC chemical agent to debilitate one or more suspects at distances of up to 21 feet or more.
