Women in Police Leadership Tell Their Stories Part 2

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 and Women in Police Leadership Tell Their Stories Part 1).

Women in Police Leadership Tell Their Stories Part 2 features three female chiefs. In this video, they chronicle their careers, candidly describe the often blatant gender bias they experienced early on, and speak with inspiration and insight about the awesome responsibility they feel as chiefs and female chiefs. This video can serve as powerful incentive for women to enter and stay in policing and for all police leaders to continue working toward a profession in which both men and women can thrive. The running time is 22 minutes.

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