Natasha is 15.5 year member with West Van Police and from a large policing family. Her father, a retired NCO RCMP mbr, would help female members during his career. Although this was not the norm, this type of leadership resonated with Natasha. In fact, it reminds her of BCWLE’S vision and is one of the reasons she joined and shares with other members as to why they should join BCWLE.
