Empower Yourself with RAVES
Articles, Stories and Public Safety Content
We had more breaks in our street over the weekend.
Our Police are at capacity... who would want to be a police officer? No one apparently, in 2-3 years the Qld Union head said there will be NO ONE TO RESPOND TO YOUR CALLS.
WAIT. We can do something. We all can. We can educate ourselves. We can demand our taxes stop being lost in bureaucracy and dodgy grants for morning teas and website development.
You can copy and paste this your you local councillor, state rep, your school - P&C, or F. Imagine a world free of fear that is safe for everyone. Go for it:
Dear local elected member/ school representative:
Thank you for your stated values of for local safety, protection for our children and working with the community.
The last 5 years have seen the home invasions and domestic violence incidents in our area triple according to the latest QPS stats release.
I am fully aware of severe Police understaffing, recruitment and moral issues and lack of detention facilities. This problem is not going away anytime soon, and another local community member should not be killed during another home invasion, sexual assault or domestic violence attack when these education programs are readily available to empower our community.
Education and personal empowerment strategies are the key to a healthy individual and hence, a thriving community.
I believe that we have access to this education within our community and I am interested in having this program readily available. Erin is a former QPS detective who is now one of the only insured/ recognised self defence and public safety experts in Australia delivering the RAVES self defence and violence prevention system (www.RAVESselfdefence.com). The methods taught are not martial arts based and do not required protracted practice and commitment and are aimed at our most vulnerable: children, women and the elderly. Erin has apprehended offenders in her home, and has extensive history apprehending violent offenders during her 12 years as an operational police officer. She has tertiary and VET level qualifications in public safety, investigations, adult learning, human performance, policy and victim empowerment.
RAVES self defence has delivered violence prevention and respectful relationship programs to local and State Govt Organisation for over 17 years. As you would be aware recent QLD Work Health and Safety Act and regulations mandate workplaces are now legally responsible for managing psychosocial hazards: and violence prevention and reslience education would be seen as a minimum proactive priority at our schools and workplaces.
RAVES self defence is sponsored by Domestic Violence prevention organisations and has delivered to over 40 schools as part of their child protection, consent and respectful relationships and pastoral care programs, and to seniors as they prepare for schoolies and adult life.
RAVES has an extensive library of personal safety education programs that would be useful for newsletters and public safety campaigns that workplaces, schools and government organisations very welcome to access and use.
RAVES is delivered all over Australia yet is under utilised in the North Brisbane local area.
If you see a potential to incorporate the RAVES program or use of RAVES public safety information please reach out and make a meeting a priority.
Personal Protections Expert and Keynote Speaker.
