04 Feb SD Police Foundation – Women in Blue Event – February 15
To kick off the San Diego Police Foundation’s 20th Anniversary, a special edition of the 2018 Women in Blue Luncheon will be held on February 15, 2018. This event will gather elected officials as well as San Diego business and community leaders. This year’s sole 2018 honoree is San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Chief of Police Shelley Zimmerman. She will be presented a Lifetime Achievement Award as she completes 35 years of service at SDPD. In her keynote, she will share her insights and anecdotes from her groundbreaking career to an anticipated crowd of over 300 at the eighth annual Women in Blue event. Chief Zimmerman will be retiring from the SDPD in March.
The Women in Blue event will honor Chief Zimmerman, a trailblazer for women in policing, and acknowledge her years of service and dedication to the San Diego community. Chief Zimmerman’s work has been instrumental in making San Diego one of the safest cities in the country.
Women in Blue is an annual program of the San Diego Police Foundation. Not only does it recognize trail blazing women in law enforcement, but it also raises monies to support the San Diego Police Foundation’s work, to provide unmet needs for equipment, training and outreach for the San Diego Police Department.
