                     Please Register For Classes At The Police Department  

This is a basic self-defense class designed to teach you some very basic ways and ideas to defend yourself. Please come prepared to get involved in some light physical activities. The class is one night only, unless you want to participate in more. So, you only have to pick one class.

To sign up, please contact the police department. Please sign up prior to the scheduled class. 

There is no cost for the class, however, donations are accepted. The donations go towards purchasing items for LPPD officers that our normal operating budget does not afford. The donation fund has purchased On-body officer cameras, body armor, and many other items. Any questions or comments can be directed to me here via messenger, or call
863-699-3757, or lakeplacidchief@gmail.com

Thank you in advance.
