Lilburn Police Department - Women's Self Defense Program

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

THE JULY CLASS IS FULL. APPLICATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE SEPTEMBER CLASS. The program is now open to women 18 years of age and older or ages 12 to 17 with a guardian. The Women’s Self Defense Program is dedicated to empowering women with knowledge to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of a crime. Space is limited and advance registration is required.

The Women’s Self Defense Program is a two-day, comprehensive course that begins with classroom instruction in risk awareness, risk reduction, crime prevention strategies, and defensive concepts followed by hands-on training in physical defense techniques. Class instruction and demonstrations will allow you to decrease your vulnerability and give you a new sense of confidence and personal power. Class activities and discussions are designed to help women identify their risks, evaluate their strengths and explore their options for dealing with the threat of violence.

The program provides effective techniques and options to protect and teaches women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well-being.

Please print the application and waiver form and submit in person or by mail to Lilburn Police Dept., 76 Main Street NW,  Lilburn, GA 30047.

You will be contacted via email once your application has been reviewed.
