Tickets go on sale Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m. for a program in Trenton geared specifically for women. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross talk to Chief of Police Tommy Wright:
According to organizers, this event will be the first of its kind for the community. “We’re very excited to partner with the Chamber of Commerce, as well as Scientific Fighting for this class,” said Wright,” Santiago Guerrero will teach the self defense portion while I, along with some of my staff, will be teaching the survival awareness portion.”
Wright said, while the community is not a high-crime-area, it’s still important for residents to be prepared and confident. “We want to be certain that the women have the information,” said Wright,” We want them to know what to look for, how to detect suspicious people and behaviors, and, more importantly, we want them to know how to act if they are attacked. When they walk away from the class, our hope is that they have all of these things in one package.”
The classes are scheduled for March 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Trenton High School Wrestling Room.
Tickets are available at the Trenton Police Department and the Chamber of Commerce for a cost of $20 each. The event will be limited to the first 40 paid participants.
