Lompoc Police Department Offers Free Self-Defense Course

The Lompoc Police Department is offering a free, two-week self-defense course to equip community members with tools to protect themselves in various threatening situations involving both strangers and acquaintances. It will cover the three basic components of self protection: awareness, assertiveness and physical techniques.

The course consists of four classes, held on Dec. 6, Dec. 8, Dec. 13 and Dec. 15. Each class runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Applications must be returned by Nov. 25 for consideration, and are available at

Applications can be returned to the Lompoc Police Department, care of Sabrina Ross, or emailed to her at: [email protected]  

Participants must be 16 years and older. Accepted applicants will be contacted with additional course information. Applicants will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. If there are more applicants than spaces in the course, applications will be kept on file for future self-defense courses offered through the Lompoc Police Department.

For more information, contact Sabrina Ross at 875-8113 or [email protected]

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
