When “stranger = danger,” RAD is the answer

Each year, 30 RAD-certified BU officers teach seven RAD (Rape Aggression Defense) courses at BU, [...]training 85 to 100 women. “We host demos at the Student Activities Fair and Wellness Fair to attract students,” says Officer Peter Shin. “And we’d like to enroll more female faculty and staff."

Shin says most classes are taught at night, but RAD instructors are willing to alter schedules to accommodate groups.

The 16-hour course covers many principles of prevention, such as how to “case” your home to see what crooks see: thin drapes, unlocked windows, a spare key hidden on site. It also teaches basic self-defense tactics that use women’s strengths against men’s weaknesses.
