You know those times where you ladies have to work late and have to walk to your car by yourself at night? Or those situations you're always worried about when you may have to defend yourself? Well, the worries are over!

The Calcasieu Parish sheriff's office will be holding a ladies personal safety seminar to educate women on how to defend themselves and give you knowledge on what to do if you find yourself in a sticky situation.

The initial seminar will be offered twice: once on Monday, October 3 and repeated on Tuesday, October 4, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. This way in your busy life, you have two different days to chose from to go.

Kim Myers from the Calcasieu Sheriff's office also said:

Advanced personal safety classes will be discussed during the initial seminar and anyone wishing to attend those classes may sign up at that time.  The seminar is a progressive workshop; you must attend one of the initial seminars and each advanced class consecutively.

  • ADVANCED PERSONAL SAFETY CLASS I – Tuesday, October 11 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
  • ADVANCED PERSONAL SAFETY CLASS II – Monday, October 17 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
  • ADVANCED PERSONAL SAFETY CLASS III – Tuesday, October 24 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

There are limited spaces available.  To reserve your space, please call (337) 431-1331 no later than Thursday, September 29.

So make sure to sign up and get educated on how to defend yourself just in case you find yourself in a precarious situation.
