    ARLINGTON, VA – The Executive Board of WIFLE and the WIFLE Foundation stand with its law enforcement partners and commends the heroic efforts by Capitol Police to contain the violence and ensure the safety of the legislators, congressional staff, and government workers on January 6, 2021.

    WIFLE sends heartfelt condolences to the United States Capitol Police and the family of Officer Brian D. Sicknick who died as a result of the injuries sustained in the line of duty protecting the Capitol.

    We are sad to announce that due to the COVID-19 virus we must postpone the WIFLE 21st Annual Leadership Training that was scheduled for August 3-6, 2020 at the Marriott Water Street Hotel in Tampa Florida.  If you made hotel reservations the hotel canceled the lodging and sent you an email confirming that cancellation.   The new date for our training will be August 16-19, 2021 at the Marriott Water Street, Tampa, Florida. We will continue to provide updates as appropriate. Stay Safe!

    In the meantime, we are working with our speakers and our sponsors to offer virtual classes from July - December that will cover some of the subject matter that would have been offered this year. Watch the website for details.

    El Paso Walmart shooting: CBP port director 'showed remarkable courage' in saving victims. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port Director Donna Sifford was shopping on her day off when a gunman entered the store and began shooting Saturday morning at the Walmart near Cielo Vista Mall, CBP officials said. Sifford "showed remarkable courage" during the shooting, taking people to safety and aiding the wounded, acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan tweeted. "She provided first aid to a man who credits her with saving his life and she continued to run back inside to bring others out to safety," Morgan tweeted. "She is the embodiment of CBP’s core values and I am so proud of her."

    In December 2018 WIFLE participated in the Research Summit on Women in Policing.  Women in law enforcement from State, local, federal and international agencies and organizations came together to look at the current state of women in policing and identify where we need to go and the challenges and research gaps affecting women’s participation in the profession. Subsequent to that event, the National Institute of Justice in coordination with the Justice Clearinghouse will present a webinar series entitled Women in Law Enforcement.  

    • June 6, 2019, at 1:00PM EST, The first presentation will be Women in Law Enforcement: Physical Fitness Standards and Testing
      This presentation will review relevant federal case law regarding gender and fitness standards. The US military and federal law enforcement recruit fitness testing policies will be compared to police academy fitness policies used in local, county and state police academies, highlighting rigorously tested models, designed to measure required physical performance levels without producing disparate outcomes.

    • July 24, 2019, at 1:00 PM EST Women in Law Enforcement: Promotion & Assignment. 
      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
