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. Four instructors, Officer Jessica Callahan, Detective Alicia Hawthorne, Sergeant Tony Flinn, and Executive Assistant Amber Hopkins have taught over 100 women how to defend themselves in the short time this program has been offered. Classes are held several times a year.

We hope to bring you another class in 2023.

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, Detectives Jon Friederich and Alicia Hawthorne, 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 in the winter of 2023,
