Active Shooter Response Training

Safety on campus is a responsibility shared by many entities, but the most important one is YOU.

Alcohol and Drug Awareness

The NC State University Police Department realizes that alcohol and drug abuse are significant issue on virtually all college campuses.

Citizen’s Police Academy

The goal of the Citizen’s Police Academy is to give members of the NC State University community the opportunity to get to know members of the police department, gain a better understanding of law enforcement practices, and see how police officers interact with the community.

CSA Training

In accordance with the Clery Act, all university “campus security authorities” (CSAs) – those officials who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities – must report certain crimes to University Police.

Self Defense Classes

R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defensive Systems)
R.A.D. is a very intense and dynamic self-defense program for women that places strong emphasis on avoidance methods but teaches and practices self-defense techniques with the realization that students still may be physically attacked and should be able to defend themselves realistically. The student is taught a wide range of options for defense. The program employs the use of a mock attacker (dressed in protective gear) so that students may practice full contact striking-techniques. This program has been endorsed by IACLEA (International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators) and is a member of AWSDA (American Women’s Self Defense Association).  This program requires a minimum of 9 hours of class attendance and if a full contact simulation is involved, the minimum is 12 hours. 
R.A.D (Resisting Aggression with Defense) For Men
This R.A.D. is for men only, designed to raise awareness of the impact of aggressive behavior, recognize how aggressive behavior impacts participants’ lives, encourage participants to take steps to avoid aggressive behavior, and to look at how individuals can be part of reducing aggression and violence.  Each participant will explore resisting aggression, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training.
Safety Skills
The Safety Skills program was created to teach participants basic safety skills and practices for avoiding confrontation.  Being that 90% of an individual’s self-defense is knowing how to avoid confrontation, our Instructors believe this is a great starting point for those interested in protecting themselves. The Safety Skills program is approximately 1.5 hours in length and can include both men and women. This program can also include a demonstration of physical defense techniques that will be taught to those who enroll in our R.A.D. self-defense programs. 
Pepper Spray Training for the Public
Pepper spray is allowed on campus as a defensive tool, and we recommend receiving training in the proper use and care of pepper spray.  This class is an hour long, and can also include an example of practical deployment of the pepper spray in a safe, outdoor environment.

Note:  Pepper spray is not allowed in sporting venues on campus, to include Carter Finley Stadium and Reynolds Coliseum.
