“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

01/15/2020

“My advice to women entering law enforcement is to be kind to one another. If you stay disciplined and determined, you can achieve anything. Most importantly, always surround yourself with good and positive people. Be strong, confident, work hard, network with others and set your goals as high as you can. This is a team effort! Challenge yourself daily, and strive to always be better. Do not let negativity bring you down. You will come across all kinds of people, but always remember why you started. Law enforcement is a very challenging but quite rewarding profession. Therefore, learn as much as you can, stay motivated and always help out others. In the end, it is always about giving back to the community that we serve and protect.” – Officer Marta Spajic #womeninbluewednesday

“As a woman entering law enforcement, you have to be brave and stand firm in what you believe in. There will be some who will doubt your abilities to be an effective police officer, and that's totally fine. You don't have to prove that you belong in this profession. As Maya Angelou once said, 'You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.'” – Officer Day #womeninbluewednesday
