Muscogee County Marshal's Office hosts 'Refuse to be a Victim' seminar

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Muscogee County Marshal's Office wants to help you not become a victim when it comes to crime.

A "Refuse to be a Victim" seminar was held at the Marshal's Office, at the Government Center on 10th Street Monday.

The seminar taught self-defense tips and offered demonstrations with tasers and pepper spray.

The overall goal was to make people aware and prepared for any situation that they may find themselves in.

"We will bring awareness and we want everybody to know that those in public safety care about their well-being. Although we can't be there every minute of the day,  we want to give them some good advice on how to be safe," says Cpl. Eziekiel Byrd. 

The Marshal's Office says a training class on guns will be planned very soon.
