A series of five “Refuse to Be a Victim” seminars will take place around Fauquier County in November and December.
Certified instructor Shelly Wright, a Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office employee, will teach strategies for financial safety, personal safety and crime prevention in the free seminars.
“Fraud and scams increase as we enter the holiday season,” Ms. Wright said. “Don’t become a victim!”
The National Rifle Association sponsors the program.
“Safety experts agree the single most important factor in surviving a criminal attack is
to have a personal safety strategy in place before it is needed,” Ms. Wright noted. “Millions of people are victims of crime annually. Don’t be one of them.”
The seminars will take place:
• Tuesday, Nov. 14 — Fauquier Hospital, second floor conference room, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.
• Thursday, Nov. 16 — Marshall Community Center, 6 to 9 p.m.
