Protect Yourself from Fraud: ID Theft and Credit Card Fraud
More than $17 billion each year is stolen from Americans by way of fraud. Learn how to detect identity theft and card fraud, what to do if you’ve become a victim, and how to prevent what you can in this fraud prevention presentation.
Property Crime 101
Property Crime 101 teaches you some of the best ways to prevent yourself from becoming a victim of property crime. Since property crime is the most common type of crime in Redmond, we look forward to educating our citizens about it.
We will go over what to if you find yourself as a victim and how you can best help investigators with the case. You will be taken through how Redmond Police handle property crime; from the initial call though the investigation/trial. We will cover a range of the most common property crimes including car prowls, auto theft, burglary and more.
Women's Personal Safety Class
The Women's Personal Safety Class is geared towards women aged 14 or older. The class helps women learn how to avoid becoming a victim of crime. We provide safety tips for work, home, outdoor activities, vehicle, social outings and what to do in case of car trouble.
This class also covers the pros and cons of different weapons for personal safety and how to legally and safely carry these. Please note that this is not a self defense course.
Active Shooter Class
Redmond Police Officers teach the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate) model to help survive an active shooter event.
The ALICE program is designed to give a person or group of people who may find themselves in a violent, life-threatening situation some mental and physical tools that could play a vital role in their survival. The program is designed so that anybody can employ the strategies: young, old, male, female – it does not matter. One does not have to be police or military-trained in order to survive a violent encounter. They do need to have a frame of reference from which to draw when making life saving decisions under extreme pressure, much like preparing for a fire, tornado or earthquake.
Remember, there are no guarantees in an active shooter/violent intruder situation, but just as in most other emergency situations the more you prepare, the better your chances of survival.
