    As you may know, human trafficking is one of our country’s largest growing – and most heinous – crimes, and the Blue Campaign cannot combat it alone. Your involvement in raising awareness of human trafficking is pivotal in ending this horrific crime in your community and in our country. We hope you are interested in sharing our materials and developing a long-term relationship to help us combat this crime.

    Brian A. Reaves, Ph.D., Bureau of Justice Statistics Presents findings on local police departments by population served in 2013, including comparisons with previous survey years. The report focuses on trends in the adoption of new types of equipment and technology. Topics include nonlethal weapons, in-car and body-worn video cameras, and license plate readers. The report covers the use of information technology by officers in the field to access records systems and to transmit incident reports. It also covers the use of websites and social media by departments for exchanging information with citizens. Data are from the 2013 Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) survey.

    U.S. Senators seek to boost women in international forces

    Also, according to the United Nations, women make up 3 percent of total military forces deployed to peacekeeping missions and 9 percent of total police forces deployed to peacekeeping missions.

    For law enforcement, the U.S. State Department would have to ensure that women make up at least 10 percent of participants from foreign countries getting law enforcement training.

    In her statement, Boxer said more women in peacekeeping missions could curb alleged sexual abuse.

    “When women are deployed on peacekeeping missions, there are fewer allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation,” she said. “Women soldiers and police are uniquely capable of reaching out to underserved populations, demobilizing and reintegrating female ex-combatants, and mentoring other women."

    The underrepresentation of women affects mission effectiveness, Shaheen added.

    "Women bring an invaluable and necessary skill set to their units,” she said in a written statement. “We know that women all across the globe are ready and willing to meet the challenge of serving in security forces alongside male colleagues. Through our support of foreign security forces, the United States is in a position to empower women through participation in security forces.”

    Dear WIFLE Member,

    The Office of Personnel Management announced a new Recognition Benefit for Fallen Federal Civilian Employees.  The law authorizes an agency to provide a single flag on behalf of a deceased Federal civilian employee as a way to express the nation’s deepest sympathy and gratitude. Loved ones who would like to receive a flag should contact the personnel office of the Federal agency where the employee worked. The benefit applies only to employees who died on or after December 20, 2011, when the Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011 took effect.
