Free Rape Aggression Defense training

-A A +A

The Chiefland Police Department will be holding free women's physical defense classes beginning in May.

   The program, known as Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.), aims to teach area women practical safety tips and risk reduction strategies, as well as techniques to defend against violent attacks.

   There is a $25 registration fee, but that money will be refunded at the first class attended. Checks should be made out to Friends of the Chiefland Police, with R.A.D. written on the memo line.

   Women interested in participating can register with the programs coordinator, Ray Tremblay, through email at suwanneevalleyrad@gmail.com or by calling the Chiefland Police Department at 352-493-6777.


R.A.D. schedule:


• May 6, 8, 13 and 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the College of Central Florida


• June 17, 19, 24 and 26, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office Training Center, between Trenton and Bell.
