Active Harmer Response Training

An Active Harmer/Shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area. More recently, the term was updated to “Active Harmer” because, while the individual’s intention is the same, the weapon used may not be a firearm (e.g., hatchet, knife, vehicle, etc.). 

Active harmer situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the person levying the attack and mitigate harm to victims.

Natural, human-caused, and technological disasters can occur at any time. Having a plan and an emergency disaster kit will increase your ability to adapt and respond if ever faced with a disaster.   

Whether circumstances dictate sheltering-in-place or evacuating, developing an emergency plan and an emergency disaster kit is an effective way to ensure you and those around you have the tools and resources in place and ready to go during an emergency.

RAD Training

The Rape Aggression Defense System for Women is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques.  The Department recognizes that for some people, personal empowerment and self-advocacy involves learning any number of personal protection strategies. There’s no experience needed to take a R.A.D. class, because the progressive building block format gives everyone the opportunity to learn the skills they want to learn — from how to be aware of your surroundings and who’s around you, to what to do if they’re attacked from behind to using proper form.  R.A.D. is not a martial arts program.
