About the International Association of Women Police

The International Association of Women Police (IAWP) is a vibrant, dynamic and diverse organization with a global reach.  Our members, who represent more than 70 countries and 30 affiliate organizations, form a strategic network of global resources working together in our mission to strengthen, unite and raise the capacity of women in policing internationally.  

Our association provides critical opportunities for training, mentoring, collaboration and networking.  Enormous advantages can be gained by learning from our women police colleagues and there is great power in many people working together in unison for a common cause.

Events for women police

We take great pride in our signature events for women police. These include an annual training conference in which police officers from a wide array of countries gather together for state of the art training in modern policing issues and policing challenges.We also host an annual awards program in which female officers, civilians and the men who demonstrate support are recognized for their exemplary efforts.
