As the President of the WIFLE Foundation, I am pleased to offer quality training to women and men in law enforcement.  I get to meet many of you at our Annual Leadership Training for law enforcement and I am always pleased at the generosity, openness and professionalism of the attendees.   We appreciate meeting you and hearing your concerns.  If you are not yet a member, consider joining. We are excellent at what we do!

Women in Federal Law Enforcement

Did you know that WIFLE is the ONLY non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in law enforcement in the federal government? WIFLE is an acronym for Women in Federal Law Enforcement. Learn more https://wiflemembers.org. Become a WIFLE member!


Your donation to the Foundation ensures WIFLE continues its annual Leadership Training event and its work toward gender equality in Federal law enforcement.



Your donation to the WIFLE Scholarship Fund helps us continue the critical scholarship assistance program for students pursuing degrees in law enforcement.


Mentoring is Imperative!

WIFLE opened a new program, the WIFLE Mentor Program.  Read more about and sign up to be a WIFLE Mentor at this link:  https://wiflemembers.org/.  In addition, WIFLE offers a session for mentoring at every leadership training event.  We have round-table discussions with local girl scouts, police explorers, and similar community groups so that we can answer questions about being female in a law enforcement environment and questions about each of the Federal agencies.  The questions show the amount of curiosity about law enforcement and underscore the importance of sharing our law enforcement life with those coming along.  We always hope to inspire careers in law enforcement and we always hope to impress upon girls that Federal, State or local law enforcement is an admirable and attainable goal.  If you want to be part of WIFLE mentoring, email WIFLE@comcast.net with your name, telephone, and brief summary of you.
