Think Out Loud

Women In Policing | Conservationists And Cattlemen On Land Management

Michael Clapp/OPB

  • We hear from former Portland chief of police Penny Harrington, Forest Grove chief of police Janie Schutz, and assistant chief of Portland police Donna Henderson about their experience on overwhelmingly male police forces. And they talk about why law enforcement hasn’t attracted more women since 1985 when Penny Harrington became the first woman to head a police bureau in a major American city.
  • Sean Stevens, the executive director of Oregon Wild, joins us to talk about conservation issues in Eastern Oregon land management.
  • John O’Keeffe, president of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, shares his perspective on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation and the concerns of ranchers when it comes to the use of federal lands.
