Submit Your Nomination for an Outstanding Woman in Law Enforcement

Women History Month

This March 2024, in recognition of Women's History Month, Senator James Sanders Jr., in collaboration with the Rochdale Village Community Relations Committee, will recognize outstanding women in law enforcement. We will honor individuals who are working hard to improve their communities and who have made great strides in their careers, holding the promise of a bright future. In 1987, Congress passed a law designating March as National Women's History Month. The achievements of women in every aspect of life benefit everyone.
