More women pursuing careers in law enforcement
The law enforcement field has long been perceived as a male dominated industry.
New data from Chippewa Valley Technical College shows more women are seeking careers in law enforcement.
The spring 2017 law enforcement academy class at CVTC had 17 students and only one of them was a woman, that’s not even 6%of the overall class.
Fast forward four years, the spring class this year has 22 students with eight of them, more than a third of the class, being women.
