LIBERTY DEFENSE TESTIFIES BEFORE THE HOUSE OF COMMONS STANDING COMMITTEE ON HEALTH
Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. was invited to and testified before the Canadian House of Commons standing committee on health on June 4, 2019, regarding the security of health care facilities throughout Canada.
Bill Riker, chief executive officer of Liberty Defense, testified as an industry expert on urban security and also presented Liberty's Hexwave technology to the leaders who manage and maintain all aspects of Health Canada.
Incidents of violence in health care facilities have increased over the last decade in Canada and abroad, leaving both health care workers and patients more vulnerable to dangerous situations in hospitals, clinics and other facilities.
"We would like to thank the Canadian federal government and members of parliament for this opportunity to discuss the current security landscape with respect to health care facilities and workers in Canada, and also introduce the work that we are doing with Liberty's weapons detection technology, Hexwave," said Mr. Riker. "Safety and security within health care facilities can be particularly vulnerable and requires a proactive approach to early detection balanced against a positive customer experience of a health care atmosphere. We are looking to help be a part of that solution."
