RJM Strategy Group, DuPage Krav Maga, and Woody Buick GMC are partnering to offer critical training on situational awareness for the public related to carjackings and how to navigate these dangerous and emotionally-charged situations.

"There has been an exponential increase in carjackings in the Chicago-metro area, and most recently in Naperville," explained May. "With the tremendous increase in these types of crimes, it's crucial for everyone to understand how to respond should they find themselves the victim of a carjacking."
