“I have had the pleasure to train and work with many women and they each bring something unique to this career that assists both officers and the citizens of the community they serve.   We each have our own way of conducting business, but with each individual we all have a goal to serve and protect and give where our community and department needs us.”

  1. It is great that you are honoring present female officers, Additionally, I think it would be nice to honor the original female officers when the police department was located on Ohio street. Without them breaking the barriers, female officers would not be honored today!
