“2014 Crime Prevention Week”
EPS ‘Hard Target’ course empowers participants
One of the key areas of focus during Crime Prevention Week is personal safety, says Sgt. Daryl Mahoney, of the EPS Collaborative Policing Unit, which also handles crime prevention initiatives.
Mahoney will be on-site at the EPS Hard Target Personal Safety Training Course:
Thursday, May 15, 2014 @ 2:00 p.m.
William Griesbach Training Centre
14310 109 Street NE
The one-day course is designed to educate men and women on how to avoid, and as a last means, protect themselves in various crime-related situations.
“The day will be very mentally and physically demanding for the 50 students who participate, and very rewarding as well,” said Acting Sgt. Lawley. “Many of our previous graduates have found the experience to be extremely empowering.”
Founded several years ago by Lawley, Hard Target blends crime prevention and personal safety tips with basic self-defence techniques.
