I have been in law enforcement for 24 years, and I can tell you that women are still a small minority in the field, though they have seen major advances. The way women approach situations is markedly different from their male counterparts, and offers an alternative to the communities served. Women have some challenges and some advantages that men do not share, and their training and resources should reflect that, so as to make them as effective as possible in their chosen field. Traditional training addresses the "typical cop" who is generally speaking, a man. Equal does not necessarily mean identical. There is room for, and a need for, a vast variety of law enforcement officers to effectively serve their communities. The IAWP addresses the training, networking and camaraderie needs of women who are proud to serve their communities and represent the law enforcement community.
