With more than 23 years of experience in the police force, Retired Lieutenant Trish Hoffman has seen it all. Through Women Against Crime©, she helps Albuquerque’s citizens adopt personal safety habits to confront violence. Here are the facts: In Albuquerque, a violent crime occurs every hour and 37 minutes. A property crime occurs every 15 minutes. As former public information officer for the Albuquerque Police Department, Hoffman is a dynamic speaker who blends personal and professional experiences to teach audiences to:
- Create the right mindset to prevent harm
- Recognize potential predators and minimize the risk of being targeted
- Utilize everyday items, like keys and a pen, for protection
- Be a good witness
Trish Hoffman’s approach to her “Women Against Crime” class is exceptional. She is enthusiastic and passionate about the subject matter, which is all about teaching self awareness and self defense in different situations. She engages her students with her energy. She is very articulate, while getting to the point. She’s professional, she loves what she does and it shows. I was fortunate to be able to take the course more than once while bringing a different group of women each time. They all came away from the class feeling so much more confident and empowered because of it. Thank you, Trish!
