Join us for these FREE informational workshops brought to you by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office. Registration is required, and seating is limited. Please register at  

This workshop teaches the importance of being aware of your surroundings.  Due to mature content we limit the participants to adult women and mature teenagers (12 and up with a parent).  There will be a power point presentation with case studies involving women who have been abducted, assaulted and murdered.  The officers will teach simple, yet effective, self-defense tactics.  Some of these include palm heel strikes, elbow strikes, kicks and defense against choke holds. The workshops meet from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
