We never think a crime can happen to us, until it actually does. While sometimes unfortunate things do happen unexpectedly, it is important to be equipped with the knowledge and skills for personal safety and crime prevention. Having a personal safety strategy in place and knowing the techniques and tactics you can use to avoid becoming an easy victim can help you live smarter and be safer. The Refuse To Be A Victim® program is not a firearms or self-defense class. It's a workshop that will help you improve personal safety strategies and will provide you with valuable information that you can apply in every area of your life. This workshop focuses on proactive courses of action, rather than reactive. Criminals prefer easy targets. By making yourself more difficult to prey upon, you lessen your risk of criminal attack. That means having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it. Let our top Executive Counselor, Ed O'Carroll teach you how to refuse to be a victim!

About the Instructor: Ed O'Carroll began his career with the Fairfax County (Virginia) Police Department on September 11, 1989. Prior to his law enforcement career, Ed served as an Emergency Medical Technician and Assistant Chief of an Ambulance Squad in Hauppauge, New York. During his 28 years with the Fairfax County Police Department, Ed has served in numerous assignments, most recently as the internal affairs division commander and director/Major of the Public Affairs Bureau. Ed currently serves as Executive Counselor for Refuse to Be A Victim and has lectured all across the United States, teaching thousands of people all aspects of personal safety.
