To truly impact the police field, women must attain leadership positions where they can make organizational decisions, affect culture, and inspire future generations. However, in 2013, women made up only 7% of police mid-level management and first line supervisors, and 2.7% of police chiefs in the United States. Due to a lack of research in this area, we have a limited understanding of the barriers and challenges that policewomen face in seeking promotions and navigating the upper ranks of law enforcement. In this webinar, Dr. Natalie Todak will cover existing evidence and promising directions for empirical research on this topic. Lieutenant Rachel Tolber of the Redlands (CA) Police Department will bring life to the evidence by drawing on first-hand experiences gained over the course of a 20-year police career.

 

In this webinar, attendees will gain the following information:

  • An up-to-date snapshot of the status of women in leadership positions in U.S. policing
  • The benefits of promoting policewomen to leadership positions
  • The barriers hindering this progress
  • Important directions for future research
  • Suggestions to police agencies for promoting women and improving their experiences in upper-level positions

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.
