Midland County Sheriff's Department Endorses the Boot™

Dear Mr. Couturier,

As a law enforcement leader in our community, I am continually looking for ways to keep people safe. “The Boot” is a fantastic product that clearly enhances the security of interior doors of any public or private building especially schools.

After researching “The Boot™” and seeing how simple the device is to use and then the effectiveness of it, I was completely sold on this product.

The Shelter House in Midland, Michigan is a facility meant to house abused women and children and work through their crisis. The Shelter House had the foresight to have “The Boot™” installed in every one of the doors in their facility. Not only do the resident’s feel safer and more secure but the staff does as well. I am pleased because if the Shelter House does have an intruder attempt to make entry, it buys law enforcement much more time to respond to the scene.

I never had any desire to endorse a product but after learning about “The Boot™”, I feel compelled to for not only my community but other communities. I would encourage any school system to explore the use of “The Boot™” and to take advantage of the “Adopt-A-Door” program.

It is with great pleasure and confidence that I endorse “The Boot™” as the most effective safety device I have ever seen to prevent an intruder from entering through a door. Thank you for introducing this fantastic product to the public.

  • Sincerely,
  • Sheriff Scott Stephenson
  • Midland County, Michigan
