Personal Safety for Women Classes Offered

The City of Carbondale Police Department will be offering Personal Safety for Women classes over the next few months. The 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. The classes are free. We also encourage women who have taken the class previously to sign up for the workshop sessions as a refresher course.

Participants can sign up for one of the following 3 sessions being offered:

Session #1
September 30, 2017 - Saturday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Lecture & Workshops #1 and #2

Session #2
