Women In Federal Law Enforcement is the only non-profit organization in the United States dedicated to addressing reasons why women remain underrepresented in Federal law enforcement.  From our Annual Leadership Training to our Award and Scholarship Programs, we celebrate and encourage women to enter into the criminal justice fields and encourage Federal Agencies to seek qualified women for law enforcement jobs.


WIFLE provides opportunities for its members to mentor other women, to grow in the federal law enforcement career fields, to participate in seminars, webinars, and to volunteer with other WIFLE members in activities throughout a year.  We're extremely proud of the work we do and we encourage you to join WIFLE.


Research findings show that women are good communicators, can collaborate well with others, and are better able to diffuse potentially violent situations. Come join with us and become a part of the future of federal law enforcement.






You can be part of the future for women in the Federal law enforcement fields.  You  can make a difference.

Women in Federal Law Enforcement is known simply as WIFLE.  Its iconic star logo readily identifies material as being a WIFLE product.  As you can see from the images on the right, WIFLE members are in many locations and in many organizations.  WIFLE boasts members from Federal (our largest population), State and local law enforcement.


The public website is www.wifle.org.  It houses more permanent / static items for WIFLE such as its quarterly Newsletters, Research, annual training websites, and such.


Did you know that Executive Order 11478 "Equal Employment Opportunity in the Federal Government" signed by Richard Nixon on August 8, 1969, was the document that authorized women to hold positions from which they had been previously barred based on their gender.  Women could now carry firearms, execute search warrants and make arrests.  INS, USSS, USPIS, FBI, ATF were among the first agencies to hire women into sworn law enforcement positions after the Executive Order.
