R.A.D.

R.A.D., short for Rape Aggression Defense System is a free class offered to all women over the age of 14. The four-week training focuses on education and awareness and empowers women to say NO, defend themselves, and prepare for “real world” encounters. This internationally recognized program has a lifetime return and practice policy. Three instructors, Officer Alicia Compton, Officer Tony Flinn and Executive Assistant Amber Hopkins have taught over 90 women how to defend themselves in the short time this program has been offered. Classes are held several times a year.

Stop the Bleed

Stop the Bleed was added to our free classes for citizens in 2018. The initiative was created by the American College of Surgeons to teach bleeding control. The theory is to teach non-medical personnel how to properly pack wounds and use tourniquets in case of an active shooter or other mass casualty event. We currently have two instructors, Officer Jon Friederich and Officer Alicia Compton, who provide the proper techniques to save lives during this two hour course. The classes are held at various times throughout the year and all participants are given a free tourniquet to take home.

 

Our Next class will be held on november 5, 2019 from 6-8 pm!

Citizens’ Academy

The Citizens Police Academy hosted its 7th session of this 10-week academy this past fall. The citizens meet one night per week for 10 weeks to learn more about policing in Fairview Heights. Activities include crime scene processing, police and county jail tours, drug enforcement, canine demonstrations, shooting at the police range and simulator, conduct mock vehicle stops and much more! The academy is co-coordinated by Officers Jon Friederich and Ryan Weisenborn, as well as Executive Assistant Amber Hopkins. This academy is a requirement to start volunteering with the Fairview Heights Police Department.

This free program is very popular and fills up quickly, as space is limited. Preference goes to Fairview Heights residents, but all are welcome to apply!
