Sheriff Craig Webre announced the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office will host a Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) course on October 16, 17, and 18 at the LPSO Range Facility located at 3451 Highway 182 in Raceland. This self-defense course is designed exclusively for women and will take place over the course of all three days with class beginning at 6 p.m. and ending around 9:30 p.m. each evening.
This course is being offered FREE of charge. In lieu of a registration fee, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office encourages registrants to make a donation to Team Ory, a fundraising organization named for Michael “Mike” Ory who passed away in 2016 after a long battle with melanoma.

Donations for Team Ory will be collected during all three days of the course, or donations can be made directly to Team Ory through its website: www.team-ory.com.
