Written by retired Police Chief Karin Montejo, PhD, this 58 page e-book is divided into two sections. The first section targets obstacles for women in law enforcement and provides insights on how to handle them. Some of the advice includes how to overcome negative views of women taking maternity leave, how to find female law enforcement mentors, how to avoid stereotypical job assignments often given to women, and how to handle the ever pervasive "good ole boy network." This section walks you through all these obstacles and more, and provides strategies to keep them from becoming an impediment to your success.
In the second half of the book Montejo provides an overview of the typical promotional processes used by law enforcement agencies, with particular attention paid to concerns women often have. Although each department has its own procedures, these chapters address elements of the promotional process that police departments most commonly utilize. Some topics covered in this section include preparing for the promotional process, written exam preparation, a review of assessment formats, and what happens after the promotional process is completed.
Much of the research for this book was done for Montejo’s doctoral dissertation, Success Factors of Women Who Have Achieved Positions of Command in Law Enforcement. Her national study provides insights on the impact of job assignments, tenure, mentoring, education/training, and maternity leave on promotion.
