A self-defense class for women continues to receive interest.
Peru police department offered a free self defense class for women last week at the Illinois Valley YMCA, Peru.
Eight women showed up to the class instructed by detective John Atkins and officer Amy Sines.
The class started a couple years ago after an overwhelming interest, said deputy chief Bob Pyszka — there’s also been an overwhelming response to how much people enjoy the class, he said.
A date for the next scheduled class wasn’t available yet. If interested in taking the class, contact Sgt. Sarah Raymond at (815) 223-2151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
