Law Enforcement Survey

A group of graduate students at American University in Washington, DC is conducting a survey to learn about the experiences of female police officers around the world. This survey is completely anonymous and will be used to develop education and training programs to improve the performance of police officers who work for and with the community. As women law enforcement officers, through your participation, you can help to provide valuable input that may be used in the development of future training addressing gender differences in policing. The students working on this research have agreed to provide the results of their research which can be shared with participants. Your input is greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to follow the link below and answer the brief survey (it should take approximately 5 minutes). Please complete the survey by March 31, 2014. Thank you for contributing to the body of knowledge on women in the policing profession throughout the world. Feel free to forward this link to any of your colleagues who are women in law enforcement agencies globally.
