COLUMBUS–The Polk County Sheriff’s Office recently completed a Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) course. The course concluded last week.

The R.A.D. course is a self-defense class exclusively designed for women, offering a straightforward and efficient approach. The course encompasses a lecture segment that focuses on Risk Awareness, Risk Reduction, and Risk Avoidance, followed by hands-on tactical training. This system enables women to progress at their own pace, providing the option to actively participate in simulations or observe from the sidelines.

The next R.A.D. course is scheduled for July 2023. For registration or further inquiries regarding the course, contact Tracy Ramsey at (828) 894-3001 or tramsey@polknc.org.
