The Minnesota Association of Women Police exists to ensure the equality for women in the Criminal Justice field.  We strive to achieve this mission by utilizing, investing, and celebrating the individual strengths, talents, and skills of our members. We learn from each other; we grow with each other, and we support each other in all areas of our profession.


Who We Are

Dealing with the challenges of today in law enforcement requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and experiences. Minnesota Association of Women Police emerged out of a devotion to inspire and support women who serve their community, law enforcement professionalism and a desire to achieve success at highest ranks within the Law Enforcement. Established in 1955, we are a non-profit, incorporated association.
We are affiliated with the International Association of Women Police (IAWP) who serve police women across the world. Contact us to learn more and get involved. Check out for more on IAWP!
