Did you know that 4 out of 5 women will be a victim of a crime against them in their lifetime? This alarming national average is the reason the Merrimack Police Department along with Nashua Rape and Assault offers a women's Self-Defense / Rape Awareness seminar. The goal of this 2 night, 6 hour seminar is to make women aware of programs offered in the local area if they are a victim of a crime. We also give helpful tips on how to reduce your risk of being a victim. Topics that are covered are home safety, driving safety, safety at malls and reducing risk while traveling.
The second part of this seminar is a hands on training of various breakaway techniques. A defense tactics instructor from the Merrimack Police Department will show a variety of techniques that you can use if confronted.
This seminar is open to any woman 18 years old, and from 16 years old if a parent or legal guardian attends the class.
