Learn to 'Refuse to be a Victim'

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Public Safety Training Center will present a class on Oct. 23 called “Refuse to be a Victim,” which is designed to help participants create a personal safety strategy.

The blame for assault still falls on the shoulders of those who take advantage of others, but this class is designed to give people the skills to do all they can to prevent an attack.

Topics covered include: mental preparedness; how to make your home more secure, improving your physical security in various environments, safety precautions when driving and safeguarding yourself and items when traveling. Other subjects the class covers are: technological security, what to consider when choosing physical self-defense training, personal protective devices, workplace safety, safety for parents and children (from preschool through high school), safety for college students and safety for seniors and people with physical disabilities.

The class will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Public Safety Training Center, located at 12700 S.E. 82nd Ave. in Clackamas.

Cost of the class is $35. Registration is required. To sign up, call 503-794-8023.
