Women Against Crime

We invite you to come and explore the areas of personal protection.

The course begins addressing the creation of a unique,

“Personal Protection Plan”

  • What would I do if I was grabbed in a parking lot?
  • How am I supposed to react when strangers approach me and ask for money?
  • What messages am I sending with body language?
  • How do I tell if I am overreacting?
  • What steps have I taken to prepare my daughters to protect themselves?
  • What if I have already been a victim, what do I do now?

The WOMEN AGAINST CRIME course instructs on the benefits of taking personal responsibility for ourselves and our children. This plan is unique for each woman/girl and consists of awareness, prevention, avoidance and then options if you find yourself in an altercation. The survival mind-set can bring forth new opportunities as well as a feeling of safety and security.

I am a survivor, not a victim.

Prevention is the ultimate tool in crime deterrence. Education leads to this preparedness and then can bring prevention. Plan on investing some time towards making your world a safer place.

Classes are offered free to the community and given over an eight week period on Tuesday evenings, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Some of the topics covered are, awareness, how to protect yourself, your home and car, burglary, robbery, carjacking, domestic violence, rape prevention, drug recognition, internet predator safety involving children, hands on self defense, weapons awareness and much more.
