BSO PROVIDES S.A.F.E. TRAINING FOR CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES
Wednesday, November 14, 2001
2:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Ron Cochran Public Safety Building
2601 West Broward Boulevard
While the Broward Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to protecting and serving citizens and visitors of Broward County, it recognizes no one can predict where the next crime will occur or who the next victim will be. For this reason, the BSO is providing Self-defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange (S.A.F.E.) for its civilian employees that will help them avoid and survive attacks if they do occur.
S.A.F.E. training is designed to make people more aware of their surroundings while reducing their risk of becoming crime victims. The course also provides basic self-defense tactics to help ward off violent encounters. Instructors focus on the mental aspect of awareness as well as being physically prepared.
The two-hour seminar was created by the National Self-Defense Institute (NSDI), a not-for-profit corporation based in Miami. Those who wish to participate in the S.A.F.E. seminar should call the NSDI at (305) 868-NSDI.
MEDIA NOTE: This course is not open to the public. It’s for BSO employees only. But if you want to share this valuable information with your viewers and readers, please contact PIO Coleman-Wright at (954) 831-8300 in order to reserve a spot in tomorrow’s class for your reporter and/or photographer.
