The International Association of Women Police (IAWP) welcomes you to its joint Regional Training hosted by Regions 9 and 10.  The training is open to all women in law enforcement professions. The classes will be held Monday and Tuesday, March 24 and 25, 2014 at the Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas Nevada USA.  Las Vegas is home to the IAWP Chaplain Tamia Dow, who will be on hand all week.  The IAWP Board will be meeting Saturday and Sunday, March 22-23, 2014; several Board Members will be participating in the training classes which follow.  We welcome you to join us for two-days of training and networking with the IAWP.

The theme of the training is "Surviving and Thriving in Law Enforcement."  As women officers, we are well aware that facing physical danger at work is a part of the job.  We also know that in order to get ahead in our law enforcement careers, we must survive difficult times and challenge adversity.  Learning skills to negotiate a career path is critical to our success.   Hear from women who have successfully met and exceeded expectations, thrived in less than nurturing circumstances, and ultimately helped those around them adjust to new ideas and face the challenge of change. Current topics include: Human Trafficking, Crime Scene Investigation, Career/Leadership and Officer Safety. We are looking into a hands-on defensive tactics and health and fitness sessions. Please check IAWP Region 9 and IAWP Region 10 Blogs for the final speaker list.

This will be an informative and fun conference. It will also be a great way for members who have not attended an IAWP Annual Conference to experience and network with other members through this Regional Conference. Conference dress attire will be business attire, uniforms are not required.

   We hope to see you there. If there are questions or special needs please contact us. Please take a minute to register and be sure to reserve your room early.  We look forward to meeting you.
