Women's Self-Defense Training

The Peters Township Police Department's self-defense program for women is a free, two-hour class designed to teach situational awareness, basic self-defense skills and tactics, and to empower women during emergency and potentially life-threatening situations.  This training provides an opportunity for the police department and the community to work together in a non-confrontational setting.

Our officers are Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) instructors certified by PPCT Management Systems, Inc.; an organization that trains law enforcement officers in defensive tactics.

To find out more about the program, please contact Officer Mallory Jarzynka at mjarzynka@peterstownship.com.
