Greenwich PD
The Greenwich Police Department's self-defense course will be open to women ages 18-55.

The Greenwich Police Department will be holding a self-defense course for women, ages 18 to 55, this spring.

The Connecticut-based course will be run by trained members of the Greenwich PD and will train women on how to be prepared during potentially dangerous physical and psychological situations.

According to the Greenwich Patch:

Greenwich applicants will receive priority consideration. There is no fee for the program however; the Department requests that applicants be committed to the full five week program. The class size is limited to 40 students. Due to the high demand for this course, if necessary qualified applicants will be subject to a lottery drawing to determine the final class roster.

The course will begin May 19. Classes will meet twice a week from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and from 7:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. at the Greenwich Police Department. Classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesday during May and on Tuesday and Thursdays in June, with a final commencement scheduled for June 19.

All registration, preferred class times and inquiries should be emailed to the Greenwich Police Department Community Impact Section. The session coordinator is Sgt. John Thorme. He may be reached at  [email protected]
