Wauseon PD teaches self defense

Posted: Updated:
WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

There's a push in Wauseon to protect residents from being victims of crime and assault.

The police department is holding a self defense seminar. The class is free and open to anyone who wants to learn how to protect themselves.

Participants will learn physical and verbal techniques to stay safe.

Police Chief Keith Torbet says criminals look for easy targets, and he wants to make sure his residents are prepared.

"It's vital," Torbet said. "If we can prevent it, then we don't have a victim. If you can do a few small steps to prevent something from happening, then we don't have to deal with the consequences of the violent act that took place."

The class will be June 6, from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Wauseon Police Department. The class is free, but donations will be accepted for the Wauseon Center for Child and Family Advocacy.

Space is limited, so register early by calling 419-335-3821.
