LONDON, ON, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Ladies, did you know that studies have proven
that women police officers are just as effective in their roles as their male
counterparts and in fact they use a style that relies less on physical
intervention. Yet still many women have pre-conceived notions and
misconceptions that a career in policing is not an option.
When considering career choices or career changes, women are faced with
their own unique challenges and concerns. Recognizing these special demands,
the RCMP will be hosting a special career event on January 26th, 2009 in
London Ontario. This event will be hosted and delivered by women, for women,
and will focus on areas of interest to women.
Organizers want to inform participants about the vast spectrum of
specializations, opportunities, choices and challenges available. Ranging from
front line policing to high level investigations, from criminal analysis to
human resource management, or from bike patrol to Prime Minister's Protection,
the RCMP offers work from coast to coast and around the world.
Are you a woman or do you have a female friend, colleague, family member
or relative who is a Canadian Citizen, at least 18 years of age, and has a
valid driver's licence? Consider a career with the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police and experience a career nowhere near ordinary, with an organization
recognized as one of the best in the world.
There will be a number of female members from a variety of specialized
units and backgrounds who will communicate their experiences working within
the RCMP. This will be an opportunity for women who attend to speak with
members of the RCMP about work/life balance, risks/roles/responsibilities,
training, and opportunities within this iconic organization. Attendees will be
provided with all pertinent information on how to pursue a career with RCMP.
Come to our special Female Recruiting Event being held at Museum London,
on January 26th, 2009. This event is open to the media and their attendance is
