NOBLE Celebrates Women's History Month

The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) Celebrates Women's History Month

[Alexandria, VA] The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) recognizes March as Women's History Month, and honors women in the past, present and future who have tirelessly worked to build our nation. We pay special tribute to Peggy Triplett who is one of NOBLE's founders and affectionately known as its "mother".

"Millions of women, some known and unknown, have led the way to protect our democracy and civil rights," said NOBLE National President Vera Bumpers. "As a female leader serving in law enforcement, I recognize that it is women like Alice Stebbins Wells, the first woman to serve on a police force in our country, Georgia Ann Robinson, the first African-American female police officer, and Sheriff Jacqueline Harrison Barrett, the first African-American female Sheriff as well as first female NOBLE President, who paved the way for me and thousands of other women serving in law enforcement. Women have been on the frontlines of justice, pushing for legislation that ensures the right for women to vote, serve in the military and hold public office. We continue to see these magnificent women fighting to secure the future for generations to come and NOBLE is proud to honor them during Women's History Month, and every day."
