In two weeks, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department will conduct a personal safety class that is designed specifically for females ages 11 and older. The class will be held between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 18 at the Lexington County James R. Metts Law Enforcement Complex, 521 Gibson Road, Lexington. The class will be provided free of charge.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts encourages women and teen-age girls, who are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, to attend the personal safety class. Participants should wear casual clothes for the class.

Sgt. Diane Paavel, who serves as a crime prevention officer, will show participants how they can enhance their personal safety at home and at work and how they can protect themselves when approached by strangers, Metts said. Participants also will learn how to properly secure motor vehicles. The class will provide citizens with many tips that they can use daily to reduce their chances of falling prey to criminals.

A total of 40 women and teen-age girls can participate in the personal safety class, Metts said. Persons who wish to participate in the class are asked to register for the class by contacting Paavel at her office at (803) 785-2504 or emailing her at dpaavel@lcsd.sc.gov.

The personal safety class for women and teen-age girls reflects the Sheriff’s Department mission of providing professional law enforcement services that enhance the quality of life for all people in Lexington County, Metts said.
