Students in Clinton this month will be under the instruction of the School Resource Office, Mike Bennett, for the annual self-awareness training through the Clinton Police Department.
Officer Bennet indicates the training is intended for female students in junior high school and high school and it is given during a week in March in their physical education class.
The program is a three-to-five day program for the students. According to Bennett, the students start out learning about some simple things in areas of self-awareness with a little self-defense.
Last week, Officer Bennett was in the junior high school. This week, he is working with high school students. He will also be at Blue Ridge Schools and for the first time at Olympia. The program originated in LeRoy, where Bennett will also be.
