R.A.D. stands for Rape Aggression Defense. This class is open to the entire community, free of charge. It is a 12-hour defensive tactics course being held on February 26 and 28, and March 5 and 7 all at 6 - 9 pm at the Dahlonega Continuing Education Center room 101. This is a community outreach program sponsored by Public Safety. This class helps insure all women a ‘better than good chance’ of walking out of a bad situation with their dignity in check, or even more, coming home rather than ending up in the hospital – or worse!
