Non-Lethal Safe Distance Training Added to SWOSU CE Schedule

An additional Continuing Education activity has been added for the month of July at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Non-Lethal Safe Distance Training will be offered on the Thursday evenings of July 10, 17, 24 and 31.

Instructor Dr. Robert Lackey said the activity is designed to teach participants current information on area personal safety hazards. Participants will learn avoidance tactics in order to escape contact with these hazards. And, if confronted directly, participants will have a non-lethal basic skill-set designed to enable escaping to a safe distance. There will also be discussion of tasers, pepper spray and the defensive use of canes and umbrellas. The activity will be held from 7-9 p.m. in Wellness Center Room 143.

To enroll, a registration form and liability release form is located on the Continuing Education website ( The forms, along with the $39 payment, can be turned in to the Office of Sponsored Programs (Administration Building 201).
