RAD Self-Defense for Women
Rape – Aggression – Defense Systems
“Defense against abduction”
R.A.D. empowers women through self-defense.
Rape Aggression Defense, known as R.A.D., is a self-defense program designed specifically for women. The R.A.D. approach to personal safety begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, and progresses to hands-on physical defense techniques.
Participants in the program will learn a wide range of tactics, including verbal techniques, ground defense options, escaping from bear hugs and choke holds, and many more. The practical techniques are designed to maximize the strengths of a woman’s body and build upon existing instinctive responses to provide women with effective self-defense options. In R.A.D., women will have the opportunity for hands-on dynamic impact practice and realistic simulation exercises.
The R.A.D. program is taught by nationally certified instructors who are dedicated to the growth and well-being of the women in our community. The course is suitable for women of all ages and abilities.
R.A.D. is the only existing program with a free lifetime return and practice policy, honored worldwide.
R.A.D. has developed specialized simulation techniques and equipment for use by certified R.A.D. Instructors.
R.A.D. is the only self-defense program ever endorsed by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA), National Academy of Defense Education, the National Self-Defense Institute (NSDI) and Redman Training Gear.

After a car jumped a curb a local Houston area women found herself in a lake with the car submerging quick. Officers rushed into the water to get her out. Keep your hands at 3 and 9 and get your windows down as soon as possible.
Randy Scales perches on the edge of his chair, eyes squinting as he watches footage of a young man in a red-and-black work uniform hopping out of a cargo truck carrying a mountain of trash.
This is Scales’ morning routine: Get to work and fire up last night’s surveillance tapes, beginning a new chapter of the never-ending investigation into illegal dumping in Houston. Today, his subject is a perpetrator who pays two strangers a few bucks to help him unload a pile of oil drums, tires and more than a dozen wooden pallets into a ditch on the otherwise deserted road.
At the crime scene, investigators overwhelmed by the rancid smell of petroleum and stewing trash take pictures and comb for evidence. The company name on the side of the truck, the address listed on an oil drum and other clues they collect could help lead them to the suspect.
“We catch 1 percent of the 1 percent of people violating,” Scales said. “Everyday there are people dumping trash on land or in waterways.”
Scales, a Harris County Environmental Crimes Unit lieutenant, and his team of nine investigators depend heavily on video cameras to crack down on illegal dumping, a crime that disproportionally affects the city’s poorest neighborhoods.
The City Council voted last month to add 22 cameras to create a portfolio of nearly 150 total. Precinct 1’s nearly $600,000 program also includes a fleet of drones, as well as several full-time employees.
It’s paying dividends: A two-year program started in 2016 to catch those who illegally dump their trash in remote locations across Houston yielded 694 investigations and 396 charges.
“It’s been working for the city as a whole — better than what we thought,” said Jerry Davis, the councilman for District B, who initiated the program to catch illegal dumping.
The majority are people charged in the crime are private citizens: The average offender is a 50-year-old who dumps 75 pounds of waste, according to statistics the county provided. Contractors looking to dodge the expense of paying to throw away their garbage at a designated facility account for just 20 percent of offenders.
Custom-designed cameras track movement of cars and people and automatically zoom, according to Assistant Chief Deputy Chris Gore. And where the cameras can’t go, drones can. They are flown once a week to gather evidence, Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen said, adding that they can obtain search warrants through the District Attorney’s office when needed. For instance, Rosen said drones could be used to track a business that has been routinely dumping in a back parking lot.
“Our drone pilot can fly above a scene if we need them to with the proper paperwork and get video footage that way as well,” he said. “When you have video evidence, it’s pretty conclusive.”
Video evidence is all the District Attorney’s Office needs to prosecute someone. Prosecutors who specialize in environmental crimes can charge violators with anything from a Class C misdemeanor, the equivalent of a traffic ticket, to a felony depending on the weight, quality and type of debris.
Waste greater than 1,000 pounds can lead to a felony. Toxic chemicals or waste dumped into water can also carry more severe charges.
The suspect caught in the most recent footage could face two felony charges: One for illegally dumping roughly 2,000 pounds of trash and the other for illegally dumping used oil cans. To make matters worse, the trash was dumped roughly 50 feet away from the bayou, which leads to the Ship Channel and Galveston Bay.
A person charged under the Used Oil Collection Act — which prohibits the dumping of used oil, which contains total petroleum hydrocarbons and metal shavings that can harm wildlife and pollute waterways — faces an automatic fine of $50,000.
Beyond just being eyesores, illegal dumping sites present serious consequences, including being safety hazards and serving as a breeding ground for potentially disease-ridden mosquitoes, snakes and other wildlife. Dumping sites can also contribute to flooding and could potentially have a serious impact in future weather disasters.
“When you have drains that have been stopped up because people put furniture and tires and plastic, it’s going to cause flooding,” Rosen said.
He said people often begin dumping sites in ditches, where water collects and carries debris downstream, blocking waterways. But Rosen said it is especially unfair because it affects the quality of life for many communities.
“Is it right that people illegally dump in one neighborhood, but they don’t in another neighborhood?” he said. “We have to protect those vulnerable neighborhoods from people who go into the neighborhoods that are more vulnerable and trash them.”
Chris Powell, who lives down the street from the crime scene being investigated, said he has given up on the site because it routinely goes through a cycle of being cleaned up and then trashed.
“I don’t know what can be done,” Powell said, holding his 10-month-old son Frederick on his hip. “No one is watching it consistently,” unaware of the cameras which are monitoring the road.
He said the solution is community members “taking ownership” of the neighborhood.
“Whatever our city is spending money on, it will only change with more development,” he said.
Rosalind Raikes, Powell’s 64-year-old neighbor, grew up on the block and called it aggravating and frustrating to watch her neighborhood being trashed.
“It’s just nasty,” she said with disgust. “I’m sick of it.”
Her home first belonged to her grandmother, and the address is listed on the birth certificates of her 10 brothers and sisters, but the living conditions have pushed her to move.
She calls the health department, the city’s 311 hotline for illegal dumping and animal control. She is an active member of her community who makes the effort to maintain her property with groomed flower beds and a tidy front porch
“Why should I have to move out of my grandmother’s house?” she demanded.
Raikes was unaware of the steps the city is taking to crack down on the dumping.
But in the shadows, the Environmental Crimes Unit carries on its investigation. “It’s just a matter of when we’re gonna catch you,” Scales said. “Not if, but when. We’ll catch you.”

Harris County – Harris County Precinct One Deputies conducted “Operation: Don’t be Cruel” today August 10, 2019.
This warrant round-up was designed to arrest those wanted on various outstanding animal cruelty charges.
More than a dozen two-deputy teams fanned out across Harris County beginning this morning at 5 am in an effort to serve these open warrants. In all, 13 suspects were arrested, 25 warrants were cleared. At locations where arrests were not made, Precinct One deputies left information so that the accused knows how and where to address their pending criminal case.
Some of the cases date back to 2017.
Among those arrested is defendant Edmond Megdal. Our investigators have been working with him since March in an effort to get him to improve living conditions and his care of more than 200 animals discovered on his property. The animals included birds, turtles, mice, rabbits and bearded dragons. They were discovered living in deplorable conditions without access even to water. While Megdal was arrested this morning, a health condition led him to need medical attention and he was transported to an area hospital. His booking will be completed at a later date. This is why there is no mug shot of him below. You will find his image in the attached video posted to our Youtube channel.
Johanna Marie Williams was also arrested on an outstanding animal cruelty charge as well. In February, Precinct One investigators and the Houston SPCA discovered an emaciated dog at her residence. The dog was in such poor condition that a veterinarian gave it a Body condition score of “.5” on a scale of 0-9. (Zero is the worst condition, 9 the best.)
“Operation: Don’t Be Cruel” began months prior and has resulted in prior arrests as well. Defendant Tony Carodine surrendered himself prior to today. The 25 year old is accused of “Cruelty to Non-Livestock Animals”. According to investigators, Carodine was seen slamming a dog on the ground on more than one occasion. Some of the events were captured on video. He was seen grabbing the dog by the throat and hitting the dog. A veterinarian with the Houston SPCA evaluated the dog after it was seized by Precinct One animal cruelty investigators, finding it had an older fracture to its right hind leg, a possible newer hairline fracture to its left hind leg, bruising to its face and a broken left lower canine tooth. Carodine denied any abuse.
“Operation: Don’t Be Cruel” was researched, implemented and completed by the Office of Alan Rosen, Harris County Constable Precinct One.
The vast majority of those arrested face Class A misdemeanor animal cruelty charges, punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of $4,000 if convicted.
We would like to thank our partners who fight every day to end animal cruelty: the Houston SPCA and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. Without them we could not get the animals help and we could not hold those who hurt, abuse, or neglect animals accountable. We should note as always that our animal cruelty hotline is available 24/7. You can call in a tip to us directly at (832) 927-1659. The Houston SPCA has a similar animal cruelty tip line which can be reached at (713) 869-7722

Houston – In the days leading up to the 2019 Offshore Technology Conference, the Precinct One Harris County Constable’s Office conducted an undercover initiative targeting prostitution and human trafficking in Houston.
As a result of this proactive effort on May 2 and 3, 14 people have been arrested, including 13 suspected prostitutes and one alleged pimp.
The operation was conducted at an undisclosed location in Houston. Investigators answered online ads, resulting in each of the suspects arriving at that agreed upon address. Each of the women agreed to have sex for money.
In one case, the suspected pimp, Colby Bankhead, 24, drove the woman to the hotel, along with two children whom they share. The children are 9 months and two years old. It was approximately 11:30 pm. Investigators say the woman went upstairs leaving the children with Bankhead, who later left the children alone in the vehicle when he left to check on her.
Bankhead was arrested following a brief foot chase after entering the hotel. Investigators contacted CPS, which is now conducting its own simultaneous investigation focusing on the safety of the children. Bankhead is charged with evading arrest/detention. Additional charges may be added at a future date. At the moment there are no criminal charges related to the abandonment or endangerment of the children.
The thirteen women arrested were each interviewed by members of the Harris County Precinct One Constable’s Human Trafficking Division as investigators are working to determine if they can be characterized as victims of human or sex trafficking. Some are voluntarily taking part now in a recovery program offered through Precinct One.
“We should never forget that some women are coerced into “The Life” of prostitution through threats or violence,” said Constable Alan Rosen. “We want to help those who cannot help themselves.”
If you are aware of anyone who might be a victim of human trafficking, you can call the Precinct One Human Trafficking Hotline at (832) 927-1650.
