TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office is showing how you can protect yourself from crime.

The "Refuse to Be a Victim" seminar sheds light on how a few simple steps can make a big difference.

The four-hour program covers home security and automobile security, along with weapons safety and self-defense.

Sergeant Leonard Halascsak says the best way to prevent crime is to be aware of the dangers.

"You'd be surprised how many times I go to the store and I see women who have their purses in the shopping cart open. It would take nothing for somebody to just reach right in and grab a wallet and walk away. Everyone puts themself at risk to some degree," said Halascsak.

The Refuse to be a Victim seminar is this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office

The program is free but is limited to only 20 people and you must pre-register.
