On May 7, 2017, the Berthoud Service Unit welcomed retired police officer Kate Hudson for an informational session to share smart self-defense tips with all Berthoud-area Girl Scouts. Ms. Hudson was in law enforcement for over 22 years, a women’s self-defense instructor, a Rape Crisis Team counselor, and a member of the Larimer County Peer Support Team.
During the Daisy/Brownie session, girls and their parents learned about stranger danger and many tips for being safe at home and while playing outdoors or on troop outings. Juniors and Cadettes were presented with extra information about safety while babysitting and how to avoid being the victim of crime.
These important reminders reinforce good safety habits on a daily basis and teach girls how to protect themselves and others— and may inspire a girl to consider a career in law enforcement!
The event was organized by Jen Rotar for the Berthoud Service Unit and held at the Berthoud Athletic Club.
