Fourth annual Women in Policing Conference opens in Tbilisi (March 3)

 

On March 3, Ambassador Norland helped open the fourth annual Women in Policing Conference in Tbilisi, Georgia.  This year 200 female law enforcement personnel from nine countries and two continents — the largest representation ever — are attending.  The goal of the conference is to promote women’s increased representation in law enforcement institutions around the world, including in senior positions.  While at the conference, the participants will network, share best practices, and learn modern techniques in defensive tactics, ballistics examination, death investigations, anti-domestic violence, crisis negotiations, management, and leadership.
