The class will be held in the Carrollton Police Department Training Room (2025 E. Jackson Rd). RAD is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women.

The course will be taught by nationally certified RAD instructors, Officer Lauryl Duncan and Officer Shannon Hartzell. Instructors will provide each student with a workbook/reference manual.
