Uptown Westerville is a Place for Women's Self Defense

Smart self-defense begins in the mind. Smart self-defense comes from the confidence of empowerment.

Remembering 3 Simple Rules that could save you in an attack:

1. React Immediately
2. Resist
3. Crime scene two is ALWAYS worse than crime scene one

The Westerville Police Division is hosting the final 2009 women's self-defense classes on October 13th and 14th and the Westerville South High School 2nd floor Media Center, 303 S. Otterbein.

You can reduce victimization through informed decision making and sensible action.

According to FBI Statistics, men experience 49,000 violent victimizations in an average year. Women are victims of violent crimes 572,000 times per year.

The Westerville Division of Police recognizes the need to educate women in our community in an effort to reduce their risk of becoming victims. The Division’s self-defense instructors, developed a course designed to teach adult women, young and old, physical or not, simple, effective defensive skills.
