Objective: To enhance participants' personal safety at home, on the street, in the office, and while traveling with common sense prevention and awareness tips.
Practical Safety is not a defensive tactics course. The emphasis is on common sense prevention. Everyone can stay safer by raising awareness levels, looking for tell-tale signs of danger, and taking simple measures to thwart those who would take advantage of us. What do you do if you have car trouble? If you get lost walking in a strange town? What precautions should you take when checking into a hotel, or taking public transportation? Does your office arrangement offer protection? What about your home? Twenty years of law enforcement experience helps give this program its name: Practical! It's perfect for support staff, church groups, civic organizations, and businesses of all types.
