Be Safe! Be SHARP!

by: 
Tana, Arvada Library

Join us at Standley Lake and Arvada Libraries to welcome the Arvada Police Department as they give a brief introduction to their SHARP course.

The Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) course has been specifically designed to meet the needs of women, teaching principles and strategies for effectively reducing the likelihood of assault through actual techniques for countering an attack. Utilizing efficient and effective methods of subject control that do not rely on size and strength, PPCT Management Systems, Inc. has developed a training system that can be used by just about everyone who is interested in personal safety.

In other words, just because you are small and female, doesn't mean you can't defend yourself!

Participants will be able to learn more about signing up for the three session course, which is free to Arvada residents at the following events:

Standley Lake Library on Saturday, May 11th at 2pm

Arvada Library on Saturday, May 18th at 2pm
