Phantom Rescue Depends On PepperBall LifeLite

Lake Forest, Ill. —Each year, nearly 300,000 children are sold into sex slavery. Together, Phantom Rescue and PepperBall® are taking a stand in an effort to stop child trafficking.

Phantom Rescue is an elite group of former law enforcement officers, military professionals, government officials and business leaders that have come together for a single cause – the recovery of abducted children. Since 2007, Phantom Rescue has utilized Special Operations expertise, created a coalition of anti-trafficking organizations and established connections with state, federal and international authorities to perform successful extractions.

 

“When we go into other countries, we can’t take lethal weapons, so when we came across the PepperBall® LifeLite™, we felt like we have a fighting chance to defend ourselves and be successful in bringing these children home to safety,” said Tony Sparks, CEO of Phantom Rescue. “We are thrilled to work with the PepperBall team in these efforts to protect these children.”

Tony’s firsthand perspective not only provides a peek into the dangerous challenges he and his team encounter during child rescues, it explains how they have come to depend on the PepperBall LifeLite. With its covert design, potent range and non-lethal chemistry, the LifeLite has become Phantom Rescue’s primary tool in its fight against child trafficking.

 
The Pepperball LifeLite is a highly effective device, which can quickly disable an assailant without resorting to lethal force. It fires projectiles filled with potent PAVA powder at a high velocity and creates a 12' cloud upon impact. With a launching distance of 60 ft. the LifeLite is an ideal non-lethal option for Phantom Rescue as well as the everyday-civilian while at school, home, places of worship, traveling or in the workplace.

With each LifeLite sale, PepperBall® supports the men and women of Phantom Rescue who risk their lives to liberate these children and eradicate this tragic injustice.
