The National Institute of Justice started the LEADS Scholars program in 2014 out of a desire to support and develop the data and science skills of the next generation of law enforcement leadership in America. One byproduct of the LEADS program, which has enrolled 50 mid-career officers so far, was a Research Summit on Women in Policing, held in December 2018. The summit was designed to take stock of existing knowledge about the experiences of women in policing, and to identify opportunities, challenges, and research gaps affecting more successful inclusion of women in American law enforcement. This “Women in Law Enforcement” webinar series is one vehicle for sharing the kind of information that was presented during the summit.
This webinar has been presented in partnership with the International Association of Law Enforcement Planners. IALEP is a member-governed organization for people working in, or interested in, planning, policy, budget, performance measurement, analysis, research, and other related functions for criminal justice agencies.
