The Auburn Police Department will be offering a self-defense course for women later this year. The four-session course, which begins Nov. 28, teaches the RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) System of awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance. Registration is required.
The Auburn Police Department (APD) is partnering with Strategos International to offer training courses specific to church and workplace security and violence. The courses will be offered July 30 through August 2 at either Dayspring Church or the Auburn Police Training Facility. Class size is limited to 80 people. To make the classes even more accessible, the APD is offering 100 free spots (50 for each class) to DeKalb County residents for the July 30 and August 2 courses. (Details below on how to secure a free spot.)
“These courses are just another way we’re trying to educate the public on how to protect and safeguard themselves and others around them,” says APD Chief Martin McCoy. “We already offer Rape Aggression and Defense (RAD) courses and firearms safety training. By offering training on church and workplace security, we’re just adding another spoke in our wheelhouse of community education. Our goal is to continue to be a resource for how to enhance personal and community safety.”
