The Greenwich Police Department graduated 36 women who completed the Women’s Self Defense Class this fall.

The fall graduation took place on Nov. 3. Participants, who ranged from 18 to 55, completed a five-week program that was taught by highly-trained and experienced Greenwich Police Officers.

The graduates learned both physical and psychological techniques to overcome aggressors with the programs emphasis on situational awareness and avoidance. The programs goal is to bolster the participants’ self-confidence should they become involved in a self-defense situation.

The Greenwich Police Department is currently scheduling a Women’s Self Defense Class – Spring 2015 which is tentatively scheduled for April or May of 2015. Please check Greenwich Free Press or Town of Greenwich Website for exact class dates.

Any further questions can be directed to the Greenwich Police Community Impact Office.
