The class is open to all female residents of Loudoun County over the age of fourteen and space is limited to 100 participants. “The workshop is a free session whose purpose is to educate women on sexual assault issues and rape awareness,” said Sheriff Steve Simpson. “The October session is an opportunity for all women to learn to be aware of their surroundings and how to protect themselves from becoming a victim,” Simpson added.  The session will be held from 7:00 PM to 10:00 p.m. at the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Academy on Monday, October 4, 2010.

The academy is located at 45299 Research Place in Ashburn, VA.
