We just completed another amazing conference here in Oxford, MS. for the 4th annual Mississippi Women's Law Enforcement Assocation. We had some excellent training on Human Trafficking by one of our own, Adriane Reesey from the Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida and FBI Special Agent Tracey Harris from the Memphis Field Division. We then had Special Assistant Attorney General Paula Broome from the Domestic Violence division, talking about stalking and strangulation. Chief Kirkpatrick from Spokane, Washington Police Department then came and knocked our socks off with training on leadership in a most dynamic way. The last day we had Dr. Linda Keena from the University of Mississippi talk to us on Servant Leadership and our leadership style. I.R.S. Agent Ashley Allen then came and did some much needed training on Self-defense. So see.......if you were not here you really missed a most amazing conference!
3rd Vice-President of IAWP, Heather Kouts spoke to us about the benefits of membership in the IAWP and then I spoke a bit on how IAWP helped me to form the MSWLEA assocation.
I hope to be able to reach out to the membership in Alabama and Arkansas so we can one day have a person from each state attend the IAWP Conference, so put the word out and help me ladies!
We have just a couple weeks until the IAWP conference in Kentucky so lets get those registrations in and lets make region 5 proud.
Be safe, Liz
