NAWLEE 26th Annual Conference The Sky is the Limit April 19-22, 2022

Welcome to Miami! On behalf of the National Association of Law Enforcement Executives

(NAWLEE), it is my privilege and honor to welcome you to the NAWLEE 26 th Annual Conference – The Sky is The Limit. The goal of NAWLEE is to advance the careers of women in law enforcement through training, advocacy, and mentoring. Through our conference

NAWLEE offers attendees the opportunity to participate in training and networking. It is the only national conference offered annually that is run by and for women in the profession. We are excited to offer three days filled with general and breakout sessions featuring a slate of exceptional speakers focusing on pressing issues in the field. Conferences are never possible without the countless hours and dedication of volunteers who spend their own free time contributing to this organization because of the passion they have for the mission of NAWLEE. Our sincerest appreciation to all those involved in making this happen. Without the support of the Miami Police Department, and specifically Assistant Chief Cherise Gause and Commander Kimberly Caruso, this conference would not be possible. I hope that each and every one of you leaves this event inspired and rejuvenated, having learned much, and gained friendships that will last a lifetime. This is what we call discovering the spirit of NAWLEE. Serving as your President this year has been an incredible journey. It truly has been an honor to represent NAWLEE on a national platform and advocate for the advancement of women in our profession. I

hope you have an amazing conference. Together we are all stronger and The Sky is The Limit. Shannon Trump, President National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives
