Be Aware for Individuals with Disabilities

In the Be Aware class, we use videos of police interactions, discussion and activities to learn how laws and law enforcement officers keep us safe.  We discuss legal and illegal actions, practice how to report a crime if you are a victim or witness, and how to interact with police under different circumstances.  Participants will practice community safety skills, how to be aware of their surrounding and how to describe their location.
