The Dennis Police Department currently has 5 officers that are R.A.D. instructors. Each officer attended a 40-hour instructor development course where they learned the skills and techniques taught in the class. The department holds 2 classes a year, one in the fall and one in the spring.
The Cornerstone of R.A.D. Systems, this course has its foundations in education and awareness. The course includes lecture, discussion and self-defense techniques suitable for women of all ages and abilities. Classes range from a minimum of nine to twelve hours plus in length, depending on the Instructor.
The department is scheduled to host a class in October of 2022. Signup information will be posted here as well as on the department's Facebook page.
