Inspiring women

As part of local International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations on Sunday March 8 our editor Lisa Dennis was fortunate to enjoy a behind the scenes tour of the Castlemaine Police Station alongside students from Castlemaine Secondary College (CSC).
We also had the chance to hit the local streets on patrol alongside Inspector Donna Mitchell, local area commander for the Goldfields, Donna’s daughter and fellow policewoman Detective Sergeant Jaymee Cutler and her grand-daughter Olivia who was a ‘Little Copper’ for the day.
The theme of the event was ‘You Can’t Be What You Can’t See’ and aimed to encourage more young women to consider a career with Victoria Police. See the Mail for the full story.
