Lady Beware is a comprehensive, personal safety & awareness course sponsored by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office. Classes are open to both male and female. You must be 18 years of age or older, but high school students are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. 


The July 2017 class is full and registration is now closed. Thank you to everyone who registered. We will post on social media when registration for the next class opens. 

The first 50 registrants will be contacted about attending the class. The next 25 registrants will be placed on a list of alternates in the event that one of enrolled participants cancel, and registration will be closed at that time. The first 50 applicants will be contacted after registraion closes for a particular class.  A registration form must be filled out for EVERY registrant. If you are registering for more than one person to attend (a parent and a child), a separate registration form must be submitted for each person. Please fill out the form in its entirety. Because of the popularity of Lady Beware, if you are not among the first fifty appilcants and not enrolled in a class, you must fill out a new registration for future classes when registration opens again.  

Registration is FREE!
