Priceville offering ‘Refuse to be a Victim’ class

From The Decatur Daily
by Ashley Remkus

PRICEVILLE – To share tips with the public on how to safeguard yourself, family and personal property from crime, Priceville is hosting a Refuse to be a Victim class.

Registration is free, but space is limited for the class, which will be Aug. 4 at 6 p.m. at Fredrick’s Outdoor, 1312 South Bethel Road.

“The class is designed to teach you personal safety — when you’re at home, work, school or while you’re traveling,” said Priceville police Cpl. Herman Davis. “We’ll cover the little things like what type of security cameras or alarm systems are good for you and things like dead bolts. The main thing it teaches you, though, is to be aware of your surroundings.”

Refuse to Be a Victim is a nationwide program localized by police departments and other agencies to best serve the safety needs of their communities.

The course covers vehicle safety, travel security and personal protection devices such as firearms, pepper sprays and stun guns.

“We want you to know how to protect yourself with your weapon,” said Councilman Jerry Welch, a firearms safety trainer. “To defend yourself against somebody, you have to be prepared. There’s a lot of responsibility that comes with carrying a weapon, specifically a gun.”

Sheriff Ana Franklin will teach a brief session on Alabama’s firearm carry laws, Davis said.

Davis said the class is primarily geared toward adults, but teens also will benefit from the course material.

The class also covers online safety, including making secure credit- and debit-card transactions and avoiding inappropriate chat-rooms or sites.

Of the 50 available spaces, 26 were filled as of Friday afternoon, Davis said.
