NRA safety sessions aimed at students

The National Rifle Association will offer a seminar called “Refuse To Be A Victim” several times in coming weeks in Waynesville, focused on crime prevention and personal safety strategies for college bound students, such as mental awareness, preparation and avoidance techniques. This is not a defensive tactics or firearms class.  

Harry Katt, a retired law enforcement officer with more than 30 years of police experience, will present the program. Seminar topics include personal threat assessments, basic criminal behaviors, awareness and avoidance concepts, personal safety tactics, technological security and more. Seminar participants will be presented with a variety of common-sense crime prevention and personal safety strategies.

The classes take place from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on March 17, March 31, April 14, April 28, at Copper Leaf Café in Waynesville. Cost is $25.
