Pepper Spray Class Being Offered

The Quincy Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit announces another free personal safety program! In addition to daily child car seat installations/inspections and monthly women’s self defense classes, we will be offering a two hour course on the use of pepper spray. Those who have attended the self defense classes have asked for in depth instruction on the use of pepper spray as an additional level of protection. Although the self defense classes are just for females, the pepper spray class will be for men and women 18 and over.

The class will be held at the Quincy Police Station on
Monday, January 28th at 6:00 p.m.

What will the course entail? Foremost, no one will be pepper sprayed! The course will cover:
•What is pepper spray?
•How to use pepper spray
•When to use pepper spray
•Which pepper spray to get, where to get it and how to carry it
•The effects of pepper spray and how to treat yourself to exposure
•Getting away from the attacker
•Legal ramifications of situations of use.
