Mentoring is Imperative!

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.
