The Health and Wellness Ministry of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church is offering a presentation by Darlene Duncan, crime prevention specialist for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, to explore ways we can all reduce the risk of becoming victims of crime in our homes and our daily lives.
In light of the home break ins that have occurred in Poway and Rancho Bernardo, we are hosting a special Saturday program with a continental breakfast from 9-10 a.m. on Feb. 16. It is open to both St. Bart's parishioners and the Poway and Rancho Bernardo communities.
In addition to sharing her wisdom, Duncan will have time for questions and answers, so that each attendee can get personal advice on their own specific issues.
A former home health nurse and regulatory compliance analyst, Duncan graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, achieving the Presidential Academic Achievement award. She previously earned an Associate Degree in administration of justice with an emphasis in forensics and crime scene investigation, receiving highest honors and the Woman of Distinction award. For several years she taught at the Reserve Police Academy. In addition, she developed and taught classes in forensic nursing, domestic violence, elder abuse, and child abuse.
St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church is located on 16275 Pomerado Road in Poway. Call 858-487-2159 for more information.
