EPE would like to congratulate Sergeant Jodie Pearson for winning the ACWAP’s (Australian Council of Women and Policing) most prestigious award, the Bev Lawson Memorial.
Jodie is a Bomb Technician from Western Australia Police TRG BRU (Tactical Response Group Bomb Response Unit).
She is highly regarded across the nation and is recognised as being one of the most senior and proficient Bomb Technicians in Australia.
She has had extensive involvement in policing operations around the nation including the Sydney 2000 Olympics and CHOGM.
The Bev Lawson Award recognises an outstanding woman in Policing who has been a first in their field or endeavour; made a significant contribution in that field; and encouraged and paved the way for other women to follow.
Jodie’s selection to join the Tactical Response Group and train as a Bomb Technician has been ground breaking for women in Australian policing.
Jodie can be seen in the accopanying photo wearing a WAPOL BRU’s new EOD Tactical Suits.
The new lightweight suit offers unprecedented flexibility combined with extensive protection against impact, overpressure and fragmentation.
The suits are made by Allen Vanguard and distributed in Australia by EPE
