October 23, 2018, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Carbondale Police Department
The City of Carbondale Police Department will be offering Personal Safety for Women classes, which are geared toward sexual assault prevention, are designed to teach women prevention and precaution methods and how to escape from an attack should one occur.
The class consists of a lecture (which focuses on Alertness, Prevention, Precaution, and Preparation) and two hands-on workshop sessions (during which students will learn techniques for escaping from an attacker). Classes are taught by officers from the Carbondale Police Department.
Participants must be at least 13 years of age. Those under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or other adult, and have a release signed by a parent. Class size is limited to 20 people. We also encourage women who have taken the class previously to sign up for the workshop sessions as a refresher course.
