Heidi and Browning portraitHeidi Browning believes that it’s important for every woman to be prepared to defend herself.

“You never know what situation you may find yourself in,” she said recently. “That’s why you need to know how to take control of the situation and defend yourself in the best way possible. That’s what this seminar is all about.”

A women’s self-defense seminar will be held at PCOM South Georgia, 2025 Tallokas Road, from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, March 18.

Since stepping into the role of assistant director in the Department of Public Safety at PCOM South Georgia in February 2022, Browning brought with her 14 years of experience in law enforcement. She has taught the women’s self-defense seminar on both the Moultrie campus and the PCOM Georgia campus in Suwanee.

Browning is certified as a SAFE (Self-defense Awareness and Familiarity Exchange) program trainer by the National Self-Defense Institute. This program, created by the National Self-Defense Institute and sponsored by the Department of Public Safety, is recognized as a crime prevention program that will reduce the risk of violence by introducing women to physical self-defense.
