STATEMENT BY WIFLE: TRANSFORMING LAW ENFORCEMENT BY CHANGING THE FACE OF POLICING

The tragic death of George Floyd has awakened the consciousness of federal, state, and local law enforcement organizations across the globe. His devastating loss has resulted in a nationwide movement where the ensuing peaceful protests have gained the nation's attention and sparked a clarion call to all police departments to stop the senseless and brutal excessive use of force against African Americans and other minority groups throughout our society.  

Women in Federal Law Enforcement (WIFLE) stands with our law enforcement communities to condemn the violence by those who have hijacked the peaceful movement as an opportunity to destroy property and shoot and kill police officers.  Our heartfelt condolences are extended to the family of George Floyd -- and all of the families and police departments who have suffered tremendous losses during these incidents of civil unrest.

As a non-profit organization, WIFLE Foundation, Inc. and our membership organization WIFLE, Inc., have been working to change the culture of law enforcement for the past 21 years by increasing the percentages of women in the profession.  Research has shown that female officers are proven as competent as their male counterparts, are less likely to uses excessive force, are less likely to be accused of excessive force, improve law enforcement’s response to violence against women, implement community policing, and reduce problems of sex discrimination and harassment with law enforcement.

In 2016, as a result of the President’s Task Force 21st Century Policing Report, Women in Federal Law Enforcement, along with coalition partners: Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association, National Asian Police Officers Association, National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives, National Latino Police Officers Association and National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives developed a document that could be used by law enforcement agencies to help them eliminate institutionalized and systemic barriers to the recruitment, hiring, training, retention and promotion of women and minorities in law enforcement.
For more information on our strategic vision for changing the culture of law enforcement, please read our report on "Transforming Law Enforcement by Changing the Face of Policing.”
