Attorney General Jim Hood and the National Rifle Association (NRA) have joined forces to implement the NRA?s Refuse To Be A Victim? curriculum in Mississippi. The statewide training initiative focused on training law enforcement officers and other AG staff who can in turn provide training seminars in their respective communities. The NRA covered the cost of training of up to 40 persons as Regional Counselors. Currently, nationwide, there are only nine Regional Counselors, and only one other state (Virginia) conducting similar training.
?NRA is proud to assist the Mississippi Attorney General?s office with their efforts to fight crime,? said Rosemary Herr, National Manager, NRA Women?s Programs Department. ?The value of Refuse To Be A Victim? Training is that it helps citizens avoid criminal confrontation by giving them strategies they can incorporate into their daily lives. The program is popular with law enforcement officers who teach crime prevention in their communities, and we are confident that Mississippi citizens will benefit from the training.?
