+-Rape Aggression Defense classes (R.A.D.)
One of the many exciting programs Chapman’s department of Public Safety offers to females is the nationally acclaimed R.A.D. program. The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a Martial Arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates. To schedule a RAD training seminar for your group please contact Officer Josephine Wright at Jjwright@chapman.edu or public Safety at (714) 997-6763.
The national standard in self defense Instructor Certification, R.A.D. is internationally recognized for programming quality and organizational commitment to excellence. R.A.D. Systems balances the needs of women to acquire self defense education in a relatively short period of time, with the life long commitment required for physical skill mastery. How? By providing short term training opportunities in a progressive building block format, and combining each with R.A.D.'s trademark Lifetime Return and Practice Policy! Only a unified, extensive network can provide this service, honored nationwide and throughout Canada. While other programs and/or instructors struggle to keep pace, R.A.D. Instructors share life saving information with confidence, knowing that their lessons will be continuously reinforced for a lifetime!
- R.A.D. is the largest network of its kind with over 7000 Instructors receiving training in our systems to date. These Instructors teach at various colleges, universities, and municipal law enforcement agencies as well as various other community organizations internationally. R.A.D. has trained more than 300,000 women since the program began in 1989.
- R.A.D. is the only existing program with a free lifetime return and practice policy, honored throughout both the US and Canada.
- R.A.D. has developed specialized simulation techniques and equipment for use by certified R.A.D. instructors.
- R.A.D. is the only self defense program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA).
- Lawrence N. Nadeau, Director of Instructional Development and Founder.
Which stands for Prevention, Awareness, and Working together for Safety is a new crime prevention concept designed to proactively protect our community through education and the development of partnerships. The program will concentrate on strategies to avoid being a victim, being aware of surroundings, the power of a community watch mindset, and the responsibility to be a good community member. Anyone wishing to schedule a crime prevention seminar, survey, or just ask general crime prevention questions may do so by contacting Sergeant Mike Kelley at email@example.com or calling the Public Safety Office at (714) 997-6763.
+-Campus Emergency Phones
At Public Safety we feel your safety is very important, so we expanded the availability of emergency phones on campus. Now you can go to any Starnet pay phone on campus and dial *22 (a FREE call) and it will automatically dial the Public Safety department. Also push the button on any blue light phone anywhere on campus for a direct line to help.
Found property can be turned in at the main Public Safety office. Items will be documented and held for 90 days, for pickup by their owners. After the 90 day holding period the items are donated to a local charity or discarded.
Public Safety also offers the service of jumpstarting your vehicle should the battery give out while on campus. Simply contact the main Public Safety office for assistance.
In the event of an emergency on campus the community will be notified via the Panther Alert system. This system will contact and inform each member of the community according to their own preferences. All community members are automatically in the system to be contacted via Chapman email, for additional contact options sign up/in at Chapman University Emergency Contact Information Form.
+-Crime Alert Bulletins
If a crime occurs on or near campus that may impact the community notification will be sent out in the form of a Crime Alert Bulletin. These bulletins include details as to the crime in question, the location, and possible suspects. They are sent out via email to all campus community members and are also available for viewing on the public safety website (/publicSafety/crimeAlert.asp).
