Tomorrow one of our amazing police officers will be leading a training session with a member of SAVE to help bring awareness and provide safety tips to situations surrounding Sexual Assault, domestic violence, and stalking. A few weeks ago we had a great round table discussion about this, and this is being extended through this training and awareness program. Everyone is encouraged to attend, and become informed.
Here are some of the topics that will be discussed:
How to avoid sexual assaults, domestic, violence, and stalking
What to do if you are a victim
What to do if someone you know is a victim
Police guidance on relevant topics (i.e. emergency protective orders, police reporting, options, and more)
Resources in your community
I encourage you to come on out to the event it will be held on the Tyler Building in room 112.
