Class in self defense was a great experience

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Jamestown Police Department for sponsoring the RAD training that I took four days last week. The self -defense course was excellent and it was free.

For four nights last week, 20 women met at the Recreation Center and learned how to defend themselves and what to look for so they wouldn't become a victim. We had a fantastic instructor, Joanne Waite, who took us step by step through the training until our hands-on test last Thursday.

I would also like to thank Offi- cers John, Tiffany, and Karen from the Jamestown Police Department who volunteered their time and expertise. We are fortunate to live in a community that has the resources to bring this type of program to the public. If the course is offered again I would highly recommend your participation.
