The Turlock Police Department, in partnership with California State University, Stanislaus, is continuing to provide Rape Aggression Defense training to the community.
The current session has reached the maximum enrollment, but the police department is starting a waiting list for the next session.
The R.A.D. Systems Basic Physical Defense is a program designed to help women overcome the effects of sexual harassment and sexual violence by teaching assertiveness, awareness, risk reduction, risk recognition, avoidance and physical defense strategies. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. R.A.D. is designed to be offered as a single sex educational program which creates opportunities for women to grow holistically, emotionally and physically.
