A new store in Tulsa has plenty of items that will help women protect themselves against crime and its helping domestic violence victims in a unique way.
Safety and Security First is located on East Admiral. It offers more than 200 different kinds of safety items, like stun guns, pepper spray and alarms.
What makes the store unique is that it's offering discounts to anyone who brings in a protective order. And a portion of the profits go to help a domestic violence awareness organization called PACT, which stands for Project Assist Citizens in Trouble.
Store owner Charles Jordan: "I just wanted to level the playing field and say enough is enough and give someone the ability to stop these violent attacks."
PACT is also raising money to buy survivor self defense packs for victims. They include things like a stun gun, pepper spray and a training video.
