Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. and the WIFLE Foundation, Inc. are both commonly known as simply WIFLE. WIFLE has been in existence since ICWIFLE in the 70's when it was an interagency committee formed by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Treasury. WIFLE incorporated a non-profit organization in June 1999 as Women in Federal Law Enforcement, Inc. to better continue the work of ICWIFLE.  The WIFLE Foundation, incorporated in 2006, is the the educational arm for WIFLE providing Annual Leadership Training, seminars, and Scholarship Programs. The WIFLE Executive Leadership Institute (WELI) established in 2011 provides immersive leadership training sessions for GS Grades 13, 14, 15, and SES (and State, county and local equivalents) which are held in conjunction with the Annual Leadership Training. To this day, WIFLE continues to be the only non-profit in the United States dedicated to addressing reasons why women remain underrepresented in Federal law enforcement.

Be part of the future of women in Federal law enforcement.  They can't be what they don't see.  JOIN TODAY!
