Women in Law Enforcement Recruitment Fair to be held Oct 27

A Women in Law Enforcement Recruitment Fair will beheld on Wednesday, October 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the UAA Student Union next to the Wells Fargo Sports Complex. Parking is free. This event is open to everyone.

Representatives from municipal, state, and federal law enforcement agencies statewide will be participating. This program is sponsored by the Women Police of Alaska with the support of the Alaska State Troopers, the Alaska Association of Chiefs of Police, and the UAA Justice Center.

Although Alaska's population is 49% female, only about 10% of sworn law enforcement officers are women. Law enforcement agencies are actively recruiting for female officers.
