To the editor:
I am so thankful for the self-defense class offered to me and other citizens by the Peabody Police Department.
I was taught by Sgt. James Harkins and his great staff about so many different tactics that I will hopefully never have to use. But I am now confident enough to know I can defend myself.
Sgt. Harkins made the class fun at times, but he was also serious and gave us encouragement that we could carry out everything taught to us.
I highly recommend that anyone and everyone take this course.
