Top SDPD women law enforcers honored

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Police Foundation held its Fifth Annual Women in Blue luncheon Wednesday.

The event honors the San Diego Police Department's top women law enforcers.

Shelley Zimmerman delivered the keynote address following her first year in office as the city's first woman Chief of Police.

"I don't think even I realized the significance of being the first woman police chief because I've had so many families come up to me and, quite frankly more fathers than mothers, with their young daughters to say ‘you know what honey, this is the chief of police. You can accomplish anything you want in the world,'” said Zimmerman.

The honorees shared insights and stories from their paths to success to a crowd of about 300 people.
