IAWP Memorial Remembrance

Welcome to the IAWP Memorial section. Please take some time to read about the brave women and pioneers that have paved the way and some given their lives for the rights we enjoy as women in law enforcement worldwide. (Also included are our supportive male members).

Say a prayer for their family and loved ones and/or leave an encouraging message.

Though their life force has been extinguished their legacies live on through us as we celebrate the life they lived.  Email Chaplain Dow,, for a memorial listing with IAWP.
