St. Lucie County Sheriff invites parents to sign up their children for self-defense class
 
Children ages 3 ½ to 12 can benefit from an innovative self-defense class taught this summer by St. Lucie County School Resource Deputies, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

“The program is called RadKIDS, which stands for Resisting Aggression Defensively,” said Sheriff Mascara. “In this time of heightened concern for your child’s safety, RadKIDS is an excellent – and proven – investment to protect your children.”

The program is taught for 2 ½ hours a day for five days. The program gives children general guidance, rules, videos to watch and directed conversation with specially trained deputies.

Each class is limited to the first 20 children to sign up. Tuition is $20 for the first child and $10 for each sibling. Registration is available at the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office, 4700 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce, Monday through Friday.

Information and applications are also available by calling 772-462-3356 or at this web page on the Sheriff’s Office web site: hittp://www.stluciesheriff.com/radkids.php.

Classes will take place at Southern oaks Middle School, 5500 N.E. St. James Drive, Port St. Lucie. Here is the schedule:
