Did you know that one in three women is subject to an assault over the course of their life? You can reduce the risk by being prepared!
Sergeant Jennifer Boswell, Assistant Academy Director with Roanoke City Police Department, and her team have designed this clinic to help you recognize bad situations and to have a mental plan in order to survive.
Participants are taught simple crime prevention tips, as well as basic defensive tactics with the aim of getting away from an attacker so they can call for help. Officers arrive in full safety gear, encouraging participants to go hands on during the training.
Most participants wear comfortable clothing and athletic shoes!
