veteran police officer and trainer, Betsy Brantner-Smith shares a few thoughts about becoming a police trainer... if that's your interest.

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and we were lamenting (as usual) about something or other. That day’s topic happened to be “where are all the new, young police trainers with fresh ideas and original concepts?” I pondered the issue long after we’d hung up the phone and I began to ask myself “hey, where are all the new, young female trainers?” After all, sworn law enforcement is approximately 12% female, with more women in corrections and in the federal ranks than ever before. Most women are good communicators, they like to share ideas and they are drawn to helping people, so it would stand to reason that we’d be seeing more female trainers and speakers out there.
