“We are very excited to bring this to the public. Part of our mission as a law enforcement agency is to educate people so that we might be able to avoid an incident or survive it if it occurs. The recent attack has brought people’s interest to the forefront and we want to be able to provide the citizens with some useful information. I highly recommend that citizens come to one of these classes. The classes are available to anyone however women are encouraged to attend as they targeted more often by the criminal element. We have some great instructors that can provide some really good information and I hope will fill the room every night.” - Sheriff Faile.
