They stepped up to cover over a hundred calls for service across the city including shootings and even arresting a dangerous individual for carjacking.

“To all the woman entering law enforcement I would say, never doubt yourself. Times will get hard and sometimes it may seem that the job is more than you can bear. But always give it all your best and treat the citizens with respect. Never forget, people don't call the police when they are happy, they call us when they have given up. They call us when they need help and when they are at their worst. It is our job to always be there to save the day and make things better.” – Officer Tiara Brown #womeninbluewednesday

“I was born and raised in the District. For me, there was no other department out there that would make me leave my hometown. I wanted to take care of the place and people that saw me grow. My advice to women entering law enforcement is to keep your head up high and don't let anyone tell you that you can't do this job.” – Officer Mendoza #womeninbluewednesday
