Annual Awards Dinner


Former U.S. Marshal to Speak

at Annual Awards Banquet


When members of the Wichita Crime Commission get together on October 24th gather to honor law enforcement at the 60th Annual Awards Banquet, they will hear remarks by a law enforcement professional who has a long and distinguished history of service to our country.

Tina Rowe brings inspiration, enthusiasm and the knowledge and skills of an accomplished career, to every group with which she works. She served for 34 years in law enforcement, beginning with the Denver Police Department, where she started as a pioneer female police officer in 1969, became the department’s first female sergeant and was promoted through the ranks before retiring as a patrol captain in District Two, northeast Denver. She then served as the Presidential appointed United States Marshal for Colorado for eight years and was responsible for the security of the Oklahoma City bombing trials and custody of the defendants. She continues to participate on panels and boards related to security planning for high-threat and high-risk events.

Tina speaks nationwide about topics related to personal, professional and organizational development. She is the author of Worship Without Worry—a series of church safety and security programs that have been distributed worldwide to more than 20,000 places of worship. That material is the foundation for seminars that are sponsored by churches, law enforcement and U.S. Attorney’s offices.

Her book, A Preparation Guide For the Assessment Center Method, is in its second edition and has helped thousands of officers be more effective in their promotional processes. A second book, Bold Patrol: Self-Initiated Patrolling Strategies, is in the publication process.

She is one of the two “workplace doctors” on the Ask The Workplace Doctors website, a site that answers private sector workplace questions from around the world.

Tina is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, 127th Session and has a B.A. degree in Organizational Management from Colorado Christian University.

The banquet will take place at 6:00 P.M. on October 24, 2014 at the Doubletree by Hilton Airport Hotel.
