Next round of self-defense training for women starts May 20


The Franklin Police Department once again is offering free self-defense training to women who live or work in Williamson County.

The training incorporates awareness building, prevention, risk reduction & avoidance, as well as hands-on self-defense training by experienced police officers. 

Registration is required for this 4-day series meeting from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. May 20, 22, 27 & 29 at
Franklin Police Headquarters, 900 Columbia Avenue.

The 12-hour program is designed for the average woman with no previous experience or background in physical skills training. Mothers & daughters are encouraged to attend this free training together.

“Helping to provide this training is something that I always look forward to,” RAD Instructor Sgt. Amy Butler said. “Participants walk away from this experience with a renewed feeling of confidence that they can avoid or overcome an attacker, we just show them how.”

According to statistics, 78 women are forcibly raped every hour in the United States. Just as startling: One out of four college students reported being sexually assaulted sometime during their four years of school.

For more information or to register, email Sergeant Amy Butler.
