Seattle, WA -- The International Association of Women Police (IAWP) will hold its 47th Annual Training Conference in Seattle, Washington, September 20--24, 2009. The conference will bring together hundreds of law enforcement officers from more than 45 countries to participate in training programs that promote leadership, professional development, diversity and networking opportunities.

"It's been more than 30 years since Seattle last hosted an IAWP training conference -we are very pleased to have the international spotlight on our city once again for this exciting and valuable week of peer and leadership meetings," said King County Master Police Officer Beth Lavin, IAWP 47th Annual Training Conference Director. "While the conference is an outstanding platform for female, and male, police officers to exchange ideas and support their peers, it also offers a unique opportunity for businesses to market to an interested and motivated target audience. Additionally, it is a terrific opportunity for recruiters to speak with a large population of potential hires."
