LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Women can have the opportunity to learn how to defend themselves through the Lafayette Police Department.
LPD conducts rape assault defense training. The RAD system is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The course is taught by nationally certified RAD instructors.
This is the first time in about two years that LPD has hosted an RAD class. Amanda Deckard, the LPD’s administrative assistant to detectives, told News 18 that learning to protect yourself isn’t the only benefit of the class.
“It’s a huge confidence builder for women, and so we see the main thing they walk away with is having that confidence and being able to be prepared if something were to happen,” Deckard said.
The class will be held June 11 and 12 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Oakland High School gymnasium located at 1100 Elizabeth St. in Lafayette.
Attendance on both days is required and the minimum age to attend is 13 years old. The registration fee is $10 and only 20 places are available.
