    The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), U.S. Department of Justice, is sharing information about a compliance review report that OCR recently issued to the Alabama Department of Public Safety (DPS) (which is part of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency-ALEA).  As OJP explains in its press release, OCR evaluated DPS’ efforts to recruit, hire, and retain female troopers, and concluded in this compliance review report that DPS fell short of its civil rights obligations in these areas.  The report includes several recommendations for improving DPS’ and ALEA’s recruitment program, selection procedures, and fair employment practices so that they can provide equal employment opportunities to female trooper applicants and troopers and better serve communities throughout Alabama.

    Women in government: A slow but steady progression up.  a much higher percentage of women in top management positions in the federal government than there is in the general U.S. workforce, according to a 2014 Office of Personnel Management report. Thirty-four percent of senior executive service positions at federal agencies are currently held by women, said the report. By contrast, in the private sector, women occupy just 14.6 percent of executive jobs, according to a 2014 report from the Center for American Progress.

    And women’s numbers are greater across other upper echelons of the federal government, as well. They held approximately 44 percent of federal government positions in both professional and administrative occupations, according to a 2011 report from the Merit Systems Protection Board. That’s close to double the number in 1976, when the MSPB began reporting on the role of women in the federal government. And now nearly five years later, the percentage likely swelled further.

    This week Air Force Office of Special Investigations lost four special agents in the suicide bombing near Bagram Airfield in Helmand Province, Afghanistan on December 21, 2015. Special Agents Adrianna Vorderbruggen, Michael Cino, Peter Taub, and Chester McBride were all killed in the line of duty.  In addition, Special Agent Jonathan Jackson was wounded in the bombing.  All were conducting a patrol as part of an investigation when the bomber drove a motorcycle into them and detonated an explosive device.  Also killed was NYPD Detective Joseph Lemm who was on active duty with the Air National Guard.

    SA Vorderbruggen becomes the twentieth woman killed in the line of duty in the federal sector.  She leaves behind a wife Heather and a son.  SA Vorderbruggen spent years working to repeal the ”Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy which is changing the culture of the military.

    Many of us use this time of the year to reconnect and spend time with our families. Please try to find a moment to think about or say a prayer for the families left behind and of our law enforcement brothers and sisters at AFOSI.

    Victoria Police must end abuse of women in the force


    The VEOHRC report is believed to be one of the largest workplace sexual harassment studies ever conducted anywhere in the world; almost 5000 employees were interviewed. It found widespread discrimination, sexual harassment and even rape. Gay and lesbian members of the police were also victims.
