CUMMING, Ga. — A seminar that teaches methods to avoid dangerous situations and prevent criminal activities and confrontations is being held twice this year.
The award-winning Crime prevention and personal safety seminar Refuse to be a Victim will be held at 5 p.m. on Sept. 25 at the Cumming Police Department, 301 Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Cumming.
The free seminar is open to the public and there are about 20 seats still open.
Refuse to be a Victim experts say the most important factor in surviving a criminal attack is to have an overall safety strategy before you need it. Seminar topics address personal safety issues as well as home, automobile, telephone, technological and travel security.
Seminar participants are presented with a variety of common sense crime prevention and personal safety strategies and devices they may integrate into their daily lives.
Refuse to be a Victim was developed by the National Rifle Association in 1993 in response to requests for crime prevention seminars.
Members of the law enforcement community nationwide have endorsed the program. The skills taught in the course help to prevent personal attacks and present ways to keep communities safer.
The seminar is appropriate for teenagers and up. Student material packages will be provided to attendees.
