REDLANDS, Calif. — The Redlands Police Department is gearing up to empower women with essential self-defense skills once again.

In an effort to bolster personal safety awareness and equip women with the tools to minimize the risk of victimization, the department will host a seminar tailored specifically for women next month.

The "Woman's Self Defense and Safety Workshop," is part of the Redlands Police Department's Street Smart program. Geared towards women and girls ages 12 and up, the three hour workshop includes an engaging lineup of presentations by members of the Redlands Police Department, hands-on training in self-defense tactics, and an interactive question and answer session focused on personal safety.
