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 for women is designed 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 class is held over four evenings and each one is 3 hours. The next two sessions will be October 15, 17, 22, 24, and November 5, 7, 12, 14. Class is held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. each night. The class size is limited to 12 people and often fills quickly. 

If you are interested in attending the class or would like more information, contact Detective Kelli Scherer at 720.898.7985 or kelli-s@arvada.org. Participants must be at least 16 years of age.
