Police offering May women safety workshops
The Birmingham Police Department is presenting “Safe in the City” free workshops for female Birmingham residents, aged 12 and up, on Wednesday, May 8, 6:30-8:30 p.m., and Friday, May 17, from noon to 2 p.m., at the Department of Public Services, 851 S. Eton Road in Birmingham.
The free two-hour workshop offers simple, street smart survival skills presented in a safe training environment. The program is designed to teach participants tips to avoid conflict and to increase their chances of survival through awareness and escape techniques. Practical self-defense, tips on target-hardening your home and cybersecurity are a few of the topics that will be presented.
“Our April workshop filled up quickly and there are limited spaces available for the May workshops,” said Birmingham Police officer Casey Pedersen. “We encourage our female residents 12 years old and up to attend this workshop and learn valuable tips to help them stay safe.”
