JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Jones County Sheriff's Department is hosting a self defense course Tuesday.  

The training session is a two-part series. The first class will be held Tuesday from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the sheriff's department training center.

The course is open to anyone 16 years and older at no charge. Anyone who wants to attend is asked to wear comfortable clothing and closed shoes.

“We're just wanting you to be prepared for those quick situations when you may be grabbed, you may be surprised by an attacker,” said Sheriff Alex Hodge. “This would give you an opportunity to create a quick move that would possibly save your life from an attacker.”

Anyone is welcomed to attend. You may also reserve a spot by calling Sgt. Jessica Wilborn at 601-422-5480.

The training center is located at 130 North 12th Avenue in Laurel. The second self defense session will be held March 24. Attending both sessions is not required.
