F.C. Police Offering Free Rape Aggression Defense Course

RAD is not a martial arts program. The course is available for women ages 12 and up on December 3, 5, 10 and 12 from 6 – 9 p.m. at St. James School at 905 Park Ave. in Falls Church. All four courses are required. There are a limited number of spaces available.
