[ARCHIVED] BTPD to offer 'Refuse to be a Victim' seminar


“Refuse to Be a Victim,” a nationally recognized crime prevention seminar, will be presented by the Bristol Tennessee Police Department on Wednesday, Dec. 11, from 6-9 p.m. in the Police Training Room of the Slater Community Center.

This award-winning program focuses on personal safety and practical crime prevention methods that help community members minimize their chances of being a victim. It is not a firearms instruction course and no instruction in physical combat self-defense is included. Rather, the seminar offers tips designed to make participants safer at home, in their vehicle, at work, and on the internet.

“The class is designed to provide the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude to enhance personal safety,” said Lt. Brian Hess of the Bristol Tennessee Police Department. “Through this seminar, we hope to open the eyes of the public and help them develop practices that can potentially keep them safe.”  

Those interested in attending this three-hour seminar should register at by Monday, Nov. 25. For additional information, please contact Lt. Hess at (423) 989-3453 or
