Women’s Safety Program

Shepherd Park Plaza is a supporter of the Precinct 1 constable program. One of the benefits of being a participant is that SPP female residents can participation in a free Rape Aggression Defense (“RAD”) program. The RAD approach to personal safety begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, and progresses to hands-on physical defense techniques designed especially for women.

Participants in the program will learn a wide range of tactics to protect themselves if attacked. The practical techniques are designed to maximize the strengths of a woman’s body and build upon existing instinctive responses to provide women with effective self-defense options.

This is a 12-hour program that will be taught over four consecutive nights from Monday – Thursday evening, August 10th – August 13th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at St. Stephens United Methodist Church at 2003 W. 43rd, Houston, TX. Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions.

This program is open to women who are residents of Shepherd Park Plaza and Candelight Plaza that are 14 and over. Teenagers ages 14-17 must be accompanied by a female adult. The class is designed for 8 to 25 participants. To sign up, please go to: http://pct1constable.net/2015/07/02/81015-81315-shepherd-park-candlelight-plaza/
