Personal safety workshop Monday at the library
What would you do if someone approached you in a dark parking lot when you were all alone? Find out the best way to handle unsafe situations in a free workshop.
On Monday, Feb. 22, from 5:30-7 p.m. at Rowan Public Library Headquarters, “Personal Safety” will be the second workshop in the 2016 Learn.Act.Grow. series.
According to the National Crime Prevention Council, incidents of violent crimes and aggravated assaults have steadily declined over the past 30 years on a national level. However, the 2014 Annual Report from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety indicates a 2.7 percent increase in the violent crime rate in Rowan County.
Led by members of the Salisbury Police Department and Sidekick Karate of Salisbury, this “Personal Safety” workshop aims to teach participants simple tips and techniques to protect your vehicle, home and yourself. There is no cost to attend, healthy snacks will be provided, and attendees will be entered for a chance to win a door prize.
While there is no charge to participate, registration is strongly advised. Visit www.rowanpubliclibrary.org or call 704-216-7841 to ensure your spot, or for more information.
