Exciting Partnership for Canadian Women in Law Enforcement

On March 23rd, 2017 it was announced that Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., a subsidiary of AXON would form a new partnership with the Atlantic Women in Law Enforcement (AWLE) and Ontario Women in Law Enforcement (OWLE).

This partnership allowed AWLE to support our 2016 Officer of the Year, Cst. Tanya Lawlor of the Saint John Police Force to attend the International Association of Women Police (IAWP) 55th Annual Training Conference in Cairns, Australia. The OWLE will be able to send their Officer of the Year to the IAWP 56th Annual Training Conference in Calgary, Alberta.
