CPS workers put through paces of self-defense by LCSO instructor

Rhonda Bynum and Josh Cummins watch as Shannon Sanders punches a bag held by Kenya Moore during self-defense training on March 19 at the Hartel Building in Liberty.

The Liberty County Sheriff’s Office on March 19 volunteered its instructor, Josh Cummins, to teach self-defense to family-based safety services workers with Children’s Protective Services.

The CPS representatives learned protective measures to keep themselves safe during visits and inspections of homes where CPS is investigating child abuse or neglect.

“Hopefully we will never need to use the training, but it’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it,” said Rhonda Bynum with CPS.

The course was held at the Hartel Building in Liberty.
