Exploring Self Defense

City of Plattsburgh Police Explorer Chloe Smith practices arm bar take-downs on Sgt. James LaPierre with the help of Master Dave Boise during a self defense class at Villari’s in Plattsburgh. Explorers, members of the Plattsburgh City Police Youth Explorer Law Enforcement Program, learned basic self-defense moves, as well as handcuff procedures and confidence exercises. Students in the program attend different police training exercises and help City Police Officer and Community Resource Officer Brad Miller (not pictured) with community tasks and events.
