Franklin Police to Offer Self-Defense Series for Women; Register Now for Free Rape Aggression Defense Training (RAD)

ShowImageFranklin, TN – According to statistics, 78 women are forcibly raped every hour in the United States. Just as startling: One out of four college women reported being sexually assaulted sometime during their four years of school.

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 & avoidance, as well as hands-on self-defense training by experienced police officers.

This four-part series will meet on Tuesday 08/19/2014, Thursday 08/21/2014, Tuesday 08/26/2014, and Thursday 08/28/2014 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Franklin Police Headquarters. 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, Officer Rose Steagall. “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.”

For more information or to register, contact Officer Rose Steagall at (615) 794-2513.  Download a RAD registration form here.
