Have you have ever considered a career in law enforcement, but were unsure if you have what it takes?  The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a second annual Women’s Empowerment Event to encourage women to explore the possibilities of a law enforcement career.  During this event, women will participate in physical fitness stations that mimic the requirements for the physical testing process such as the body drag and the obstacle course. 
We invite women to attend this stress free, non-scored, educational event to “Test Your Limits.” Challenge yourself with push-ups, sit-ups, a 165-pound body drag and an agility course.  You will have a unique opportunity to experience our Force Options Simulator, which is used to train all active deputies in use of force incidents.  Engage with current women from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office from various assignments and backgrounds who will be present to provide instruction and insight on the path to becoming a Deputy Sheriff in an open and casual setting.
For more information and to register for the event, go to and click on Women’s Empowerment Event at the top.
