All women welcome! Come with your Mom or Daughter and learn tactics to be safe, discover important topics and connect with the School Liaison Officers.The Women’s Personal Safety Workshops are one way the VPD is giving back to the community. In January 2013, a group of VPD female police officers came together with the goal to empower women by teaching concepts and skills regarding crime prevention and dealing effectively with violent encounters. **The workshop is open to women, minimum age of 16 years at the start of the program. Anyone between 16 to 18 years must have a parent/guardian 19+ sign their waiver (available on the day of the program) **This workshop is designed to be easily learned and remembered by women with little or no tactical training.Please register for this free program. In the event that you are unable to make it, please call the Community Centre 604.257.6976 to withdraw, so we are able to utilize all spaces.
