International Association Women Police

"Police officers from around the world will be attending the event to learn, network and share best practice in law enforcement from across the globe."

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 25, 2014

Law enforcement officers are expected to travel far and wide to attend the two day conference entitled ‘Striving and Thriving in Law Enforcement’.

Jaycee Lee Dugard was abducted in 1991 at the age of 11 from her South Lake Tahoe neighbourhood. At the IAWP conference next month Officer Ally Jacobs, M.A. (retired) will speak about her August 2009 encounter with Phillip Garrido and how she used not only her police intuition, but also her mother’s intuition to help end Jaycee’s 18 year-long nightmare.

Other topics being covered at the conference, which will be held at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on March 24 and 25, include human trafficking, surviving a critical incident, leadership strategies and workplace resolution.

The IAWP has members in 69 countries around the world and its mission is to strengthen, unite and raise the profile of women working within criminal justice.

The IAWP, which celebrates its centenary year in 2015, is segmented into regions around the world of which 1-10 cover the USA. The Las Vegas conference has been organised by US based regions 9 and 10.

Region 10 coordinator Fabian Brown, a Deputy Sheriff for San Francisco, CA, said: “Police officers from around the world will be attending the event to learn, network and share best practice in law enforcement from across the globe. It will be an informative event and a great way for those who have not attended an IAWP conference before to meet other members.”
