The International Association of Women Police (IAWP) and the Australasian Council of Women and Policing (ACWAP), supported by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) are delighted to host the 2017 International Women & Law Enforcement Conference.
For the first time, this global event will be held in Cairns, Queensland, Australia - an excellent opportunity to showcase the beauty of tropical North Queensland. Cairns is known for its community spirit, which aligns perfectly with the conference theme. The chosen theme “Global Networks: Local Law Enforcement” was selected to highlight the importance of partnerships and celebrate the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the community around the globe.
ACWAP and IAWP are renowned for delivering world class events to promote women and law enforcement. The conference will incorporate the 55th IAWP Annual Training Conference & Award and Recognition Programs, together with the 10th Biennial ACWAP Conference and the 19th ACWAP Excellence in Policing Awards. Experts from national and international law enforcement agencies, family and community agencies, legal representatives, academics, researchers and community groups all collaborate to make these events a resounding success.
The 2017 International Women & Law Enforcement Conference is an exciting opportunity for Australasian police and law enforcement partners to join our global community and enhance women in law enforcement and other community protection roles.
We invite you to join us to harness our collective knowledge and develop new methods of ensuring the safety and security of all within our communities.
