Sgt. Gary Eblan from the Boston Police Department will be on hand to teach his self-defense class “Street Smarts: Reducing Your Odds” in response to the recent sexual assault that occurred in North End. The class will take place on Thursday, March 6th from 6-7:30pm at the BCYF Nazzaro Community Center, 30 North Bennet St.
This event is sponsored by Councilor LaMattina and all of our local elected officials and will be free and open to the public. All are encouraged to attend.
This course focuses on awareness tips for greater safety at home, work, and in public. We will discuss how an assailant chooses a victim, when and where an attack is likely to occur and how to make yourself a less attractive target. Individuals will gain a sense of their own abilities and understand the options available to them in case of an assault.
Participants will be taught how to put together a plan to “Reduce
Their Odds” of becoming a victim.
This course has been presented to thousands of students, business professionals, community, church and civic groups throughout New England.
