Women in Police Leadership Tell Their Stories Part 1

As part of the BJA Executive Session on Police Leadership’s diversity focus, the National Research Center (NRC) is working with one of our topic groups headed by Pam Antil. The work began at our Executive Session on Police Leadership (ESPL) meeting in early 2017 where Angelica Weddell of NRC videotaped interviews with several of the participants (see: Diversity, Gender Balance and Inclusivity in Law Enforcement).

We are pleased to launch the second phase of ESPL’s Diversity video project: Women in Police Leadership Tell Their Stories Part 1. The running time for this video is 20 minutes and features four, high-achieving women in positions of leadership. They briefly describe how they got started and how they got to where they are now. They describe instances of bias and challenges they have had to overcome in their careers. They explain why women should have a space at the table in the field of policing. In addition, they share advice for other women who are seeking success in law enforcement careers.

The BJA ESPL wishes to thank the National Research Center for its contribution to our work.
