The RAD Program Gets New Suits

The University of Houston Department of Public Safety recently received two new Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Aggressor Suits and two new sets of Strike Pads for their RAD program. Beverly McPhail with the Women’s Resource Center on campus has always been very supportive of the program and expressed her support by purchasing this new gear for the Department of Public Safety. Since 2004, UHDPS has held 16 RAD classes with 131 participants. Needless to say, the old equipment was getting worn out and needed to be replaced.

The Rape Aggression Defense System began in 1989 and UHDPS joined the RAD program in 2004. The goal of the program is to empower women to defend themselves when faced with an attacker. During the class, participants discuss various ways of resisting an attacker, including forceful physical resistance, forceful verbal resistance, and running away from an attacker, which have all proven to be beneficial in surviving an attack. Each participant also gets a chance to practice these skills during Simulation Day, which is when the suits and pads are used. Thanks to Beverly McPhail and the Women’s Resource Center for all their support.

Women who are interested in or have questions about the RAD training program can email Lt. Derrick McClinton at
