CLOSING SPEAKER

Sylvia M. Moir

Chief of Police (ret.)

Tempe, AZ Police

A California native, Chief Moir has over 30 years of local police practice; with over a decade as a Chief of Police. Chief Moir is known as an executive who is calm in chaos, enthusiastic about the profession of policing and focused on positively influencing the culture and climate of the organizations she leads through strategy and policy work to better serve the employees and community. She was the Chief of the El Cerrito California Police Department from 2010 until her appointment as the Police Chief in Tempe, Arizona.  She spent most of her early career with the Sacramento Police Department where she served in every division of the department and she was the Incident Commander on hundreds of planned and spontaneous events, a trainer in several policing subjects, and a member of the Sacramento Police Honor Guard. Notably, she completed rigorous and humbling training with the US Army Old Guard at Fort Myer, VA, and Arlington National Cemetery.

In retirement, she is the Principal of the Macrae Group specializing in public safety advising and consulting, the chair of the Community Policing Committee of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, an advisor for WRAP Technologies, a member of the Law Enforcement Immigration Task Force, and is an Executive Fellow for the Police Foundation. She served on the Executive Board of the Arizona and California Associations of Chiefs of Police and is a past President of the Police Executive Research Forum.

Chief Moir is in demand as a speaker and in 2019, Chief Moir participated in TEDx SoMa’s Modern Campfire series, where she discussed the complexity of modern-day policing and the importance of practicing mindfulness in the profession.  During the talk, Chief Moir spoke about the impact of mindfulness on her leadership, her employees, and the promise that the practices are showing for de-escalation, sound decision making, humanity, and resilience.

Chief Moir holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from California State University, Sacramento, a Master of Arts in Organizational Management, and a Master of Science degree from the Naval Postgraduate School - Center for Homeland Defense and Security.

She is married, lives in Arizona, and enjoys reading, hiking, running, and will try almost anything once.

History

Everything starts with an idea, and Women of Law Enforcement is no exception. In 2013, Chief Jimmy Perdue, of the North Richland Hills (TX) Police Department, came up with the idea of empowering women in the field of policing through an annual conference. He wanted to provide them with a strong network of leaders that could build up others, mentor, and train females in the many aspects of law enforcement. He took this idea to then Lieutenant, Carrie White, to bring this vision to life. As a natural-born mentor, Carrie knew exactly what to do and surrounded herself with a robust board of leaders to help her breathe life into the newly formed organization. Chief Perdue wanted to ensure Carrie was prepared for the arduous task of developing a large scale conference. Carrie attended the IACP Women's Leadership Institute for the rigorous course that works to develop female leaders of law enforcement.

In 2014, after many meetings and very intentional planning, the first Women of Law Enforcement Conference was held. Year one welcomed 110 women of policing from across the nation to the Southlake Training Center. Fast forward to where the organization is now, and it continues to outgrow venues with more massive crowds, as the demand for quality training specifically designed for women grows.

The Executive leadership of the Women of Law Enforcement brings many years of experience and varying ranks to the team. The organization continues to be led by Captain Carrie White. It is now expanding into specialized groups to assist the executive team with developing and planning for an even bigger and better conference than the year before.
