NYWLE was developed by a core group of 14 women representative of the many different areas of law enforcement within New York State who served as our founding Board of Directors. These women all shared a vision to strengthen the Law Enforcement Community through the celebration of diversity, the promotion of education and the development of leaders.
To date, our organization has expanded to almost 400 members, led by our Board of Directors comprised of 21 women from across the state.
Each year, NYWLE hosts an annual training conference which affords women and men in law enforcement the opportunity to enhance their professional and personal lives through a range of relevant training topics. The election of new Board Officers takes place at each conference.
We are looking for both women and men who would like to work together to strengthen public recognition of the unique contributions of women to the profession of law enforcement.
