Arvada Offers Self-Defense Classes for Women

The Arvada Police Department regularly offers classes to residents on crime prevention, animal management, and self-defense. One of the most popular and successful classes is the Sexual Harassment, Assault, and Rape Prevention – or S.H.A.R.P. – class.

This FREE self-defense class is designed for women to give them the confidence and skills needed to defend themselves in situations ranging from sexual harassment in the workplace to being approached or grabbed by a hostile person.

The next class will be held over a period of four evenings, October 20, 22, 27 and 29 at the Arvada Police Beghtol Training Facility. Each session is three hours, from 6 – 9 p.m.

Participants must be at least 16 years of age, however, 14- and 15-year-olds may attend if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and must be Arvada residents.
