 Dear P1 Member,

Every officer overcomes a wide variety of challenges on a daily basis. As female officers, we're confronted with challenges our male counterparts may never face. Sometimes we create our own challenges and sometimes hurdles are placed before us by others.

In this month's Women's eNews, we feature three different perspectives on meeting and defeating challenges. Jodi Butts shares the inspirational story of Julie Gallagher, a supervisor with the Border Patrol Search, Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) Team of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Leischen Stelter give us insight into how Dena Weiss, a crime scene investigator from Florida, learned to cope with trauma.

Also, Nancy Fatura writes about how she unleashed her inner athlete and overcame her personal struggle to stay physically fit for the rigors of the job.
