about National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

The National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives (NAWLEE) was formed in early 1995 by a small group of women holding senior management ranks in police agencies throughout the United States of America. It was incorporated as a nonprofit organization less than a year later, in March 1996, with an initial membership of about 150 women. The women represented a variety of types of police agencies, including federal, state, county, municipal, campus, and railroad law enforcement agencies. At its first conference in July 1996, Alana Ennis, then the chief of the Duke University Police Department, Durham, North Carolina, and a founding member of the group, was elected the first president. In 2002, during her term as president, Theresa Chambers became the first female chief of the United States National Park Police and the first chief to have been selected from outside the National Park Service.
