Ulrich Faircloth is the Founder and Co-owner of Stun & Run Self Defense LLC, a personal protection and crime prevention company based in MInneapolis, MN. It is a business intent on preventing crime and saving lives, with an educational component of helping to encourage people to Take Action, Prevent Crime and Live Better.
Ulrich is a former crime prevention intern and Community Service Officer (CSO) with the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD). He graduated with a BA in Sociology from Beloit College, with an emphasis on public safety.
His passion for crime prevention and security awareness began with the MPD. Ultimately, he came to the conclusion that he did not want to be a police officer. Ulrich wanted to prevent crime rather than react to it, which is the fundamental purpose behind police departments and their officers. Wanting to be more involved with the community instead, he started his company as a way to help protect those in need.
Ulrich is a member of the National Crime Prevention Association (NCPA) and a dedicated instructor on non-lethal/less-than-lethal self-defense products.
