California Police Chief- Fall 2013 - Page 32

California Police Chiefs Association took the event statewide and brought in the State Sheriffs ’ Association , the California Peace Officers ’ Association and the California Highway Patrol as co-sponsors . To this day , WLLE hosts upwards of 800 female and male attendees each year . WLLE has grown tremendously since 1987 , and this year we were honored to have attendees from states such as ; Arizona , Colorado , Michigan , Nevada , Texas , Tennessee and Utah .
Chief Sandra Spagnoli was the recipient of this year ’ s Trail Blazer award which is presented annually to a woman working in law enforcement ( sworn or professional ) who has made outstanding contributions to her profession and / or professional organization . A secondary consideration is her contribution to the California community as a volunteer . The community service may be in any sector ( human services , the arts , civic , political ) but must be as a volunteer and not as an employee or elected official .
The Women Leaders in Law Enforcement Training Symposium would not be possible if not for our generous sponsors ; American Military University , U . S . Armor , Union University , Jones & Mayer , Liebert Cassidy Whitmore , Wells Fargo : Home Mortgage , Cambridge Financial , Sun Ridge Systems , Blauer , San Jose Police Department , CAHP Credit Union , Nationwide , Bob Murray & Associates , Bay Area Rapid Transit Police and LA County Police Chiefs Association .
