Armstrong Police offers rape prevention instructions, known as Defense and Tactical Education (D.A.T.E) and Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.). These classes are comprehensive, women-only courses that begin with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. D.A.T.E and R.A.D. provide women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about resistance and instills confidence in all those that participate in the program. The class is offered only to female students, faculty and staff free of charge. Armstrong Police currently has four nationally-certified R.A.D. instructors and is in the process of acquiring more instructors. The instructors at Armstrong have partnered with the instructors at Georgia Southern University and the Coastal College of Georgia to provide quality instruction at all of the institutions.
