Cambridge Police Badge

Due to the amount of interest in past courses, Cambridge Police will be holding another series of self-defense classes during the month of October. Beginning on Saturday, October 15, 2011, self-defense classes will be held on four consecutive Saturdays and are offered FREE to any female Cambridge residents who wish to attend.

Classes will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and run until Noon at the Citywide Senior Center, at 806 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge.
Space is limited, and those interested should call 617-349-6009 for more information and to reserve their spot.

The Cambridge Police Department’s Self-Defense Program is a comprehensive course for women, which begins with information about awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and avoidance, before progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training.
