In conjunction with instructors from the Janesville Police Department, we will be hosting a S.A.F.E. training class. S.A.F.E. is an acronym for; Self-Defense, Awareness, Familiarization and Exchange. The self-defense class is designed for females, and offers them an opportunity to learn how to protect themselves from crime and introduces physical training methods. 

The program is available only to females age 16 and up. No males may attend the event. The program could be particularly beneficial for female students that will be going off to college in the fall. 

The program cost is $5.00 to cover materials. It will be held at the Gathering Place in Milton on August 3rd from 9:00am – 11:00am. The Gathering Place is located at 715 Campus Street. Class size is limited to 15 people.
