|Women in law enforcement present their perspective
Published: October 8, 2013.
Lewis University presents “Women in Law Enforcement: How They Leave Their Mark” at 2 p.m. Oct. 17 in LR-347 of the Library located on the university’s main campus in Romeoville. Females in law enforcement will share their perspectives on the field and serving their communities and their country. The event is free and open to the public.
Over the last decade, the increase of women in police work has diminished the traditional idea of law enforcement as a male dominant profession. Women have become more prevalent in law enforcement in all areas, from patrol to detectives, to supervisors even to chiefs of police departments and federal agents with the FBI and DEA. Local and federal professional law enforcement women will discuss their personal challenges, rewards and insight on how to be successful in a law enforcement career. They will address hiring and promotion practices, transitioning from private citizen to police officer, relationships and family.
“Women in Law Enforcement: How They Leave Their Mark” is being presented as a part of Lewis University’s Arts & Ideas Program, providing cultural and educational programming for students and the community. A portion of the Arts & Ideas events is sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council. For additional information, please contact Dr. Michael Cunningham, director of Arts & Ideas, at (815) 836-5385.
