(ATLANTA) - Worthmore Jewelers continued its long-standing tradition of giving back to the Atlanta community it calls home by giving two free personal safety seminars late last year.
The seminars were led by local safety expert Michael Briant of SKYDAS Group International - an award-winning strategic security consulting firm. Briant focused on preventative instruction - encouraging situational awareness, understanding criminal methodologies, and identifying outlying behaviors - with supplementary physical self-defense instruction offered by Highland Martial Arts.
Community members of all physical skill levels attended the seminars.
Harris Botnick, Worthmore Jewelers president and owner, said the events were inspired by tough situations faced by close community friends. “Crime rates really sky-rocket this time of year (holiday season), and we’ve had quite a few friends fall victim to muggings and other senseless personal attacks,” said Botnick. “We feel that helping to keep our friends, families, and community members safe is the best possible gift we can give.”
