ABOUT WIFLE

Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. and the WIFLE Foundation, Inc. are both commonly known as simply WIFLE. WIFLE has been in existence since ICWIFLE in the 70's when it was an interagency committee formed by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Treasury. WIFLE incorporated a non-profit organization in June 1999 as Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. to better continue the work of ICWIFLE.  The WIFLE Foundation, incorporated in 2006, is the the educational arm for WIFLE providing Annual Leadership Training, seminars, and Scholarship Programs. The WIFLE Executive Leadership Institute (WELI) established in 2011 provides immersive leadership training sessions for GS Grades 13, 14, 15, and SES (and State, county and local equivalents) which is held in conjunction with the Annual Leadership Training. To this day, WIFLE continues to be the only non-profit in the United States dedicated to addressing reasons why women remain underrepresented in Federal law enforcement.

The two WIFLE organizations work together to promote and support women in federal law enforcement. These two tax-exempt organizations form the WIFLE organization.


Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. was incorporated in 1999 as a 501(c)(6) non-profit corporation to serve as a professional organization for women and men in federal law enforcement. It is an outgrowth of the former Inter-agency Committee on Women in Federal Law Enforcement (ICWIFLE) that was created in 1978 and co-sponsored by the U. S. Departments of Justice and Treasury.

The WIFLE Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in 2006 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, is the educational entity providing for the Annual Leadership Conference, the Scholarship Program, research and other programs. The WIFLE Scholarship Fund, administered by the WIFLE Foundation, Inc., provides scholarships to students pursuing educational opportunities in law enforcement related fields.
