The Ankeny Police Department is partnering with the Urbandale Police Department to offer RAD, a self-defense training program designed specifically for women.

Rape Aggression Defense Systems (RAD) is the largest self-defense network in the country. The RAD system teaches awareness, prevention, risk reduction, and basic physical defense techniques. The course culminates in a "realistic simulation" which gives the students the opportunity to test their abilities on a real person during a simulated attack. RAD is taught by certified instructors from the Ankeny Police Department. There is a $30 fee for the course that includes a training manual, RAD T-shirt, and a lifetime return practice policy. This is the perfect course for any woman who is interested in learning how to protect herself. Mothers and daughters are encouraged to attend together.
