The Tallahassee Community College Police Department provides several training classes to promote personal safety on and off campus. Our goal is to create a well-informed, well protected community. Currently TCC PD offers Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) and Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (C.R.A.S.E) classes to students, faculty, and staff.
The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D) Course
The Tallahassee Police Department (TPD), Florida State University Police Department (FSU PD) and the TCC Police Department want you to be aware of free self-defense training that is available to women in our community.
The Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) course, offered by TPD and FSU, is taught by nationally-certified R.A.D. instructors. 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.
Reasons to Take R.A.D.
- R.A.D. is a system of physical self-defense techniques and risk avoidance for women.
- R.A.D. balances the needs of women to acquire self-defense education in a relatively short period of time by providing short term training opportunities in a progressive building block format.
- R.A.D. teaches you to recognize dangerous situations, and to use potentially life-saving techniques.
- R.A.D. only takes 12 hours, with the last 3 hours as a voluntary simulation.
- R.A.D. is a FREE course offered and instructed by members of the Tallahassee Police Department.
Class schedules for FSU PD can be located here. Free non-credit classes are ongoing and registration links are available on their web site.
Civilian Response to Active Shooter Event (C.R.A.S.E)
The Tallahassee Community College Police Department offers the nationally recognized Civilian Response to Active Shooter Event (C.R.A.S.E.) training program to students, faculty, staff, and visitors. While there is no known active threat to Tallahassee Community College, TCCPD is aware of the continuing need for preparedness training in light of recent incidents.
Why take C.R.A.S.E.?
Built around the AVOID-DENY-DEFEND model, the CRASE message is designed to educate, empower, and provide attendees with an action plan for surviving an active shooter event. In just two hours, this FREE training will teach you how to be prepared in an active shooter event, as well as in everyday life. You will also learn how to recognize dangerous situations and respond with potentially life-saving techniques.
Through situational awareness and mental scripting, attendees will leave with a sense of preparedness, not fear. The goal is to provide a decisive action plan that will limit the number of potential victims accessible to the shooter and assist police response. Officers will be available to address specific questions and concerns after each training.
C.R.A.S.E. was developed by the ALERRT Center at Texas State University. Their trainers qualified our TCCPD Instructors in C.R.A.S.E.

What is Human and Sex Trafficking?
Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery that globally generates billions of dollars yearly.
Human Trafficking operates according to the dynamics of supply and demand which complicates combating it. Florida ranks 3rd in the United States in Human Trafficking cases behind only California and Texas.
Why take this course?
In this course, we will:
- Define what Human and Sex Trafficking is
- Explain how to differentiate between trafficking and smuggling
- Learn how the victims are kept in bondage and forced to work
- Give you the tools to recognize the signs of trafficking
- Show how traffickers recruit and retain their victims
At the end of the course, you will have gained the ability to identify and define Human and Sex trafficking, how to avoid being a victim, and finally how to report any suspicious activity to local authorities for them to respond.
