Haywood County is partnering locally with Refuse To Be A Victim, a program designed to help individuals strategize personal safety.
Experts agree that the single most important step toward ensuring your personal safety is making the decision to refuse to be a victim. That means that you must have an overall personal safety strategy in place before you need it.
The Refuse to Be a Victim program teaches tips and techniques to assist individuals with developing their own personal safety plan to avoid becoming the victim of a crime. Those who have attended say they have learned new methods to help prepare and protect themselves and their family, and they now feel more confident after attending the program.
Please contact Deputy Kevin Brooks 828-356-2882 for details or to request Deputy Brooks to present the program to a group.
