In this episode of NCJA 10-14, our host Kirk Puckett is joined with Amber Burgress-Cox, and Instructor/Developer at our Edneyville campus to talk with a group of ladies that heard the call and join the ranks in helping their communities by becoming law enforcement officers. Our guests today include Chief Gina Hawkins of the Fayetteville Police Department, First Sergeant Sharlene Cotton, two members of the Hendersonville Police Department Officer Michele Hoyle, and SRO Joreeca Dinnall.
We will discuss things from women joining the police force, the dynamics that they bring, and the obstacles they have faced. We will even touch on the new initiative 30X30, which aims to help increase women in law enforcement by 30% by 2030. For more information on the 30X30 visit: The 30×30 Pledge – 30×30 Initiative
