Sheriff Overton commented, “Wonderful to see the community come together and work in unison for this goal of staying prepared. Thanks to Ferrum College, Dr. Johns, all of our L. E. partners and public safety.”

Along with the Office of the Sheriff, participating agencies were; Virginia State Police, Ferrum College Police Department, Virginia Conservation Police and Franklin County Public Safety.

LOCAL AGENCY TAKES RAD TRAINING

Not long ago, the Southern Virginia Child Advocacy Center held a RAD Class. RAD stands for Rape Aggression Defense. It is designed to teach women realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. These simple, but effective moves also work for men to ward off attackers, as well. Deputy Joe Wooldridge teaches these classes and Deputy Stephannie Mills assisted. Thanks to all the CASA workers who volunteered for this training.

For more information on these classes, contact Deputy Wooldridge by email at joe.wooldridge@franklincountyva.gov
