Exciting Partnership for Canadian Women in Law Enforcement

On March 23rd, 2017 it was announced that Axon Public Safety Canada Inc., a subsidiary of AXON would form a new partnership with the Atlantic Women in Law Enforcement (AWLE) and Ontario Women in Law Enforcement (OWLE).

This partnership will allow AWLE to support our Officer of the Year to attend the International Association of Women Police (IAWP) 55th Annual Training Conference in Cairns, Australia.
