RADKids - Personal Empowerment Safety Program, (Resisting Aggression Defensively)
RadKIDS - Personal Empowerment Safety Program, (Resisting Aggression Defensively), is a program to provide educational opportunities for children and parents concerning awareness and personal safety strategies, instilling confidence, and reducing the possibility of adverse physical control or harm.

This is a fun class offered, at no charge by the Tallahassee Police Department Crime Prevention Unit, to children ages 7-12. We request that parents attend the first day. Classes will be held at various locations. Please call to confirm the location(s). While the simulations are voluntary, students must commit to attending all four days of the class. To receive a certificate, the child must be in attendance for a total of 10 hours, which is spread out through four days. Each class is limited to 20 students.
