Unfortunately, crime and violence are a fact of modern life. But a life limited and dominated by fear is diminished. This course will provide knowledge and tools you can use to better safeguard yourself, your money, and your identity in today's world. We will cover local crime statistics, risks, levels of awareness, and ways to increase your personal safety at home, in the car, and out in the world. You will learn what you can do if you ever need to physically defend yourself. A set of defensive techniques will be demonstrated which do not require brawn and are effective against larger, stronger, and younger attackers. We will also cover weapons, self-defense, and the law, and how criminals target and test potential victims. Every day we hear about cyber-attacks and scams, and older people are disproportionately targeted. This course will raise your cyber IQ and scam awareness, and show you ways to counter the many schemes out there that seek to separate you from your hard-earned money.
