Developing a Personal Protection Plan

Empower yourself with new knowledge and skills. Take a major leap in controlling your own safety by not leaving it up to the whims of others. Predators beware.

As prepared as you think you might be, you won’t be the one who picks the moment. When faced with the possibility of violence, people who are not prepared enter a state of mental paralysis and freeze. Because everything that is happening is unfamiliar, the extended time it takes to process incoming information could cozy you or a loved one their life or cause you to make a poor decision that could have significant legal implications. The best way to prepare for that moment and not to freeze is to rehearse scenarios you might encounter.
