The Berrien County Sheriff's Department is hoping to help keep women safe on the street with self defense classes.
Monday is the first night of a three-day rape defense class, taught by the Sheriff's Department's Crime Prevention Unit at Orchards Mall.
The three sessions, April 13, 20, and 27, will focus on awareness, prevention, risk reduction and personal defense.
The free class is open to all women 14 years and older.
