Women in Law Enforcement Panel

Women in Law Enforcement Panel

Info

Join the 100 Club of Chicago for a moderated conversation with a panel of some of Chicagoland’s top female law enforcement leaders.

According to the National Center for Women and Police, women account for only 13% of police officers across the United States. Although their presence is smaller, it can be argued that women are making larger strides and changing law enforcement. Because most female officers have to rely on their intelligence and ability to mediate over the use of physical force to control a situation, they are 8 times less likely to have complaints filed against them. In a time where both mental health and excessive force are policing issues, will women be the leading voice behind these changes?

Come see 100 Club of Chicago Board Member, Abby Murray, discuss these issues with Chief Barbara West of the Chicago Police Department, Resident Agent in Charge Erin Silk of the ATF Chicago Field Division and Captain Margaret McGreal of the Illinois State Police Chicago District.

The event is located at Stratford on the Park at 2300 N Lincoln Park W. It begins at 6:00 PM. Suggested donations for entry, all first responders are welcome for free.
