Women Prevent Violent Crime
When Susan Bartlestone was 19 years old, she had a life changing event. A bad breakup with her boyfriend made her determined to learn how to protect herself. Now, with more than 17 years combined training in WW II Combatives, self defense and martial arts, she is certified as a Crime Prevention Specialist and has made it her mission to empower others to protect and defend themselves against attack.
Her recent book, Think Fast and Prevent a Violent Crime, features 60 success stories and examples illustrating the techniques that she teaches. Labeled “empowering” by more than one reader, these riveting stories provide both compelling reading and critical lessons in how to respond quickly and effectively to protect yourself on a moment’s notice.
Susan has written over 200 articles, appeared on “The Today Show” and “America’s Most Wanted.” If you missed her there, perhaps you caught her photo on the cover of Time Magazine. She hosts a weekly radio show, “Crime Prevention 101,” where she interviews guests who present an optimistic perspective on how to prevent fear with information and tips to keep everyone confident and safe.
