Put on by the Vancouver Police Department, the Women’s Personal Safety Workshops are returning this fall.
The idea for these workshops first came to be in 2013, when a group of VPD female police officers came together and created the VPD Women’s Personal Safety Team.
The tactics taught are designed to be easily learned and remembered by women who have no prior training.
These workshops will be held on September 26th (West End Community Centre), October 24th (Jewish Community Centre), and December 11th (Hastings Community Centre).
The first workshop runs from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., the second one from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and the last one in December goes from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Participating In The Workshops
The workshops are open to women, who are a minimum age of 16 years old.
Anyone under 18 years must come with a parent to sign their waiver.
Below is a video of what you can expect at these workshops:
