California Police Chief- Fall 2013 - Page 13

Stephanie Shannon 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, Target, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore, SF Police Credit Union, St. Mary’s College, Jones & Mayer, Cambridge Financial, Artemis Defense Institute, Bay Area Law Enforcement Assistance Fund, CNOA, Bob Murray & Associates, Bay Area Rapid Transit Police, Sun Ridge, San Jose PD, LA County Police Chiefs Association and National Tactical Officers Association. The Citrus Heights Police Department hosted this year’s event and planning for the 11h Annual Women Leaders in Law Enforcement Training Symposium is already underway! We hope you will join us in San Diego November 2-4, 2016 when we are hosted by the WLLE San Diego Chapter. ■ TM WINTER 2015 | California Police Chief 13
