Sheriff's office offers ladies self defense classes

By ELIZABETH RICHARDSON erichardson@newnan.com Back in high demand, the Coweta County Sheriff's Office is once again offering free Ladies Self Defense and Firearms Fundamentals classes. The sheriff's office has scheduled two Ladies Self Defense classes -- one on Monday, March 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and another on Monday, March 9, from 6-8 p.m.
Ladies Self Defense is a basic course designed to provide ladies with practical advice on avoiding victimization, as well as an introduction to various self defense tools and basic physical techniques for surviving an attack. The course is taught partly in the classroom and partly in a hands-on format. Participants should wear clothing suitable for physical activity. Course size is limited and pre-registration is required. The sheriff's office is also offering four Firearms Fundamentals classes. One session is Monday through Wednesday, March 23-25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The second session is being offered March 30-April 1, from 6-8 p.m. The third session is April 6-8 from 6-8 p.m., during the week of Spring Break. The fourth session will be April 27-29 from 6-8 p.m. Firearms Fundamentals is a three-part community program designed to provide basic instruction in the safe and effective use of firearms -- particularly handguns. Each Monday class of a session will take place at the sheriff's office -- 560 Greison Trail in Newnan -- and feature classroom instruction regarding the fundamentals of safe and effective firearms use and legal issues regarding possession, carry and use of firearms. Each Tuesday session will take place at the sheriff's office's AIS Prism Firearms Simulator. The class will highlight the practical application of firearms fundamentals in simulated scenarios. The Wednesday sessions will be held at the Newnan/Coweta Firearms Range, located at 1887 Old Corinth Road in Newnan. Participants will handle live firearms on the range. The sheriff's office provides firearms for students who do not have their own. Course size is limited and pre-registration is required prior to the first class for both the self defense and firearms classes. Participants must attend all three sessions of the firearms class. To register for the course or for more information, contact Marsha Dailey at mdailey@coweta.ga.us or 678-423-6739.
