Henrico Police are stepping up in an effort to encourage more women to join the force with a Women in Law Enforcement orientation event to be held this evening at the Henrico County Training Center.
Current female police officers, animal protection officers, and 911 dispatchers will be in attendance to answer questions and provide information. The orientation will start promptly at 6:00 PM with a presentation that will outline the application process, qualifications, benefits, academy, field training, and opportunities within the division.
After the presentation, there will be an opportunity for interaction between attendees and officers. Various officers, detectives, and supervisors who represent different sections throughout the Police Division will be available to speak one-on-one with attendees.
It all takes place Thursday, May 18th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at the Henrico County Training Center, located at 7721 E. Parham Road in the West End.
The event will conclude with a female officer demonstrating the physical agility test. The event is open to the public–not just applicants. No RSVP is required; those interested in attending can simply show up.
Questions can be directed to Officer Aliese Alter at 804.501.5196.
