The Franklin Police Department is proud to offer free self-defense training to women who live or work in Williamson County.
The training incorporates awareness building, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, as well as hands-on self-defense training by experienced police officers.
According to statistics, 78 women are forcibly raped every hour in the United States. Just as startling: One out of four college students reported being sexually assaulted sometime during their four years of school.
Williamson women are invited to join us for this four-day series:
February 13, 15, 20 & 22
All classes meet from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.:
Franklin Police Headquarters
900 Columbia Avenue
* Space is limited, and registration is required *
The 12-hour program is designed for the average woman with no previous experience or background in physical skills training. Mothers & daughters are encouraged to attend this free training together.
Helping to provide this training is something that I always look forward to,” said RAD Instructor, Sergeant Amy Butler. “Participants walk away from this experience with a renewed feeling of confidence that they can avoid or overcome an attacker, we just show them how.”
