It's a class with a purpose.
On certain Saturdays throughout the year, the Bossier Sheriff's Department hosts a free self defense class for women.
The class usually runs from 9am-noon at the Viking Drive Substation at 2510 Viking Drive in Bossier City.
The training is free of charge, and is limited to 40 applicants (first-come, first-serve basis).
Those 14 and up and participate in the self defense class for women.
Instead of a charge, it's asked that you bring canned goods or non-perishable food items as donations.
The items will be given to their food bank program, Bossier Parish: Operation Blessing.
Attire is comfortable because there will be "hands-on" training.
You can call the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy at 318-965-3525 to sign up.
