Wanted: Women in Law Enforcement - Recruitment Fair will be October 24 on campus

The 4th annual Women in Law Enforcement Recruitment Fair will be held on Wednesday, October 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the UAA Student Union, Upper Level  next to the Wells Fargo Sports Complex. Parking is free. This event is open to everyone.

Although Alaska's population is 48% female, only about 10% of sworn law enforcement officers are women. Law enforcement agencies are actively recruiting for female officers. Local, 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.

Dr. Brad Myrstol is the faculty coordinator. For more information, call the Justice Center at 786-1810.
