The Xenia Police Division is committed to educating our community about important safety and crime prevention topics. In addition to our Citizen’s Police Academy, the Police Division gives presentations, free of charge, on the following topics: Stop The Bleed, Women’s Self-Defense, Surviving an Active Shooter Event and Ohio’s Firearm Laws.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our Educational Outreach Program Calendar for the dates and times these programs are offered
In 2019 the Police Division starting teaching Stop The Bleed classes to the general public. Stop The Bleed is a nationally recognized program designed to teach life saving trauma treatment skills to the general public. We have partnered with the Kettering Health Network and The Greene Medical Foundation to present these courses free of charge. Each course is approximately 2 hours long. Topics covered include tourniquet usage, wound packing and bandaging.
We believe that everyone has a right to protect themselves. In our Women’s Self-Defense class our Defensive Tactics Staff teach women simple, easy to use methods of self-defense. Each class is approximately 4 hours long and is appropriate for teenagers and adults of all ages.
During our presentation on Surviving an Active Shooter Event, attendees will learn about how they can prepare for and survive an Active Shooter Event. This presentation is presented by ALICE and CRASE certified instructors and is approximately 2 hours long and can be attended by anyone. This is strictly a lecture based presentation so those with mobility issues can feel free to attend.
Ohio’s firearm and weapons laws can be somewhat confusing. This 3 hour presentation covers topics such as: self-defense laws, transporting firearms in your vehicle, knife laws and much more. This presentation does not meet the educational requirements needed to obtain an Ohio Concealed Handgun License. The information presented is important for private citizens who have a concealed handgun license, business owners, church members, landlords or anyone who has a desire to learn more about these laws.
