UMPD Offering Free S.A.F.E. Class for Women

The University of Miami Police Department is offering the National Self-Defense Institute’s two-hour S.A.F.E. class to members of the University of Miami community free of charge on four Wednesday evenings, beginning Wednesday, January 31.

An acronym for Self-Defense Awareness and Familiarization Exchange, S.A.F.E. is described as an unparalleled two-hour educational awareness, crime-victim prevention program which, encompassing strategies, techniques, options, and prevention, provides teenaged and adult women with information that may reduce their risk of exposure to violence and introduces them to the physical aspects of self-defense.

In addition to this month’s class, the course will be offered again on Wednesday, February 7, Wednesday, March 7, and Wednesday, April 11, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Mahoney-Pearson Commons 116 and 118. Participants only need to attend one session. While the course is designed for women, nobody will be turned away.

If interested, please email usafe@miami.edu with the date that best fits your schedule.
