The Georgetown Police Department is hosting a Women in Law Enforcement Career Night on March 12. The event will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear from women in the department and learn about career options. The event is from 6 to 8 p.m. in the training center at the new Public Safety Operations and Training Center, 3500 DB Wood Road in Georgetown.
The department seeks to hire qualified women to serve in a growing department. Women currently serve as leaders throughout the department in a variety of areas, including officers at the rank of captain, lieutenant, sergeant, and officer, as well as non-sworn supervisors in emergency communications, code enforcement, records, administration, and animal services.
The career night is open to all women who are interested, even those who do not have a law enforcement background. “Experience is not necessary,” says Capt. Evelyn McLean, who is coordinating the event. “We want women who may have never considered law enforcement previously.”
At the event from 6 to 7 p.m., four Georgetown Police Department officers—Capt. Evelyn McLean, Sgt. Renee Koog, Officer Shannon Hall, and Officer Delta Jolly—will each share their story. The officers will talk about how they got into law enforcement and the ways that they each enjoy their career. Afterwards there will be a chance for questions and answers. From 7 to 8 p.m. is a tour of the new Public Safety Operations and Training Center.
If you have questions about the event or would like more information, contact Capt. Evelyn McLean at (512) 930-8408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
