WCSO offers safety course for young adults

Children spend their formative years relying on parents for their safety and security, but when they move away from home, the burden shifts to them.

If you have a teenager moving into their own apartment or heading off to college soon, or if your teenager is still living at home but becoming more and more autonomous in the community, this is a great opportunity for parents as well as teens.

In an upcoming class sponsored by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, trainers will present interactive and informative safety precautions and strategies for young people. The class is geared toward young women, but interested young men and supportive parents are also welcome.

Topics of discussion will include: awareness of surroundings; avoiding dangerous situations; self-defense strategies; date rape; drugs and alcohol; and securing your property.

The class will be offered Friday, Aug. 23, from 1 to 3 p.m., or Monday, Aug. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bethany Village Community Room (above OHSU Doernbechers), 15220 N.W. Laidlaw Rd., in Portland.

Teens and young adults are encouraged to attend this safety class, which will help prepare them for situations they may not have encountered while living at home.

Space is limited. Spots can be reserved by calling 503-846-2579, or contact Jessica Chandler at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
