Sorry it has been so long since I last wrote on my blog. The law enforcement community has lost some great heroes since my last posting. Texas lost two female officers who were just 24 years old. We just lost our first one of the year, Deputy Suzanne Waughtel Hopper from Clark County S.O. in Ohio. Lets keep all these women and all other law enforcement officers from our region in our thoughts as we serve our communities. There were 24 law enforcement officers killed from our region last year. Alabama 1, Arkansas 3, Florida 9, Louisiana 6 and Mississippi 5. Lets take our knowledge of the threats we face daily along with our training and women warrior mentality to carry on this year with safety first to see another day.
We are gearing up for the MSWLEA 2011 conference this summer. We are actively looking for some dynamic instructors to help us have another wonderful conference. If you have any suggestions or ideas please feel free to contact me.
Bless you all and talk to you soon!
