Hazlet Police Host Women’s Safety and Empowerment Workshop

HAZLET, NJ – The Hazlet Police Department is partnering with Bayshore Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and 180 Turning Lives Around to host “Smart Strong Safe,” a program aimed at educating young women on how they can protect themselves in situations dangerous.

The two-day event, taking place April 1-3, is open to all Hazlet high school and junior high school students, regardless of where they attend school. Parents are also welcome, police said.

The program kicks off with 180 presentations of an educational resource about relationship violence, drug-assisted sexual assault and other warning indicators of potentially dangerous situations young people find themselves in, often without even acknowledging it.
