Sheriff’s Safety Town Course for College Students

College students ages 17 to 21 were at Sheriff’s Safety Town in Shreveport today, taking a one-day safety course. Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator offered the class to help college-bound students get a good idea of how to stay safe on and off campus.

Pam Dixon with Sheriff’s Safety Town says courses were offered in travel safety, distracted and impaired driving, taking care of your mental and physical health, and protecting your identity and possessions.

Other classes addressed dating violence, drug and alcohol awareness, personal safety and basic self-defense. Dixon said young woman are especially vunerable and need a “heads up” about some of the experiences they may encounter on a college campus. She says the internet and social networking have presented new challenges on how to stay safe from would-be predators.

The course was free of charge. Dixon said they hope to offer a course like this twice a year for college students.
