Day, who trains the Fairfield police officers in fighting techniques, said it’s not going to be limited to residents in Hamilton or Fairfield.
“It’s free to anyone regardless of where they live,” he said.
Collins said this is similar to the class the Hamilton Police Department offers, but more involved. The Hamilton class is a one-time, two-hour training where this is three hours over three weeks.
“It’s a good class,” she said. “And they participate to the level they feel comfortable.”
The class was offered in January, but was canceled due to a lack of registration. Day said it could have been due to the fact it was just after the holidays and was offered with a fee.
The free Rape Aggression Defense course will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Fairfield Community Arts Center, 411 Wessel Road.
