Inspire: The Women’s Portrait Projectis delighted to announce that 10 women from the Peterborough Police Service will be highlighted in their exhibit at the 7th Annual SPARK Photo Festival taking place from April 1st through to April 30th at the VentureNorth building in Peterborough.
“I shot 10 incredible police women—with my lens, of course!” laughs Heather Doughty, original founder of the Inspire Project. “Some were 30 years of service in. They were truly amazing—it was a most enjoyable session.”

The 10 female police officers will have their stories told through the camera lens and through personal bios as a special segment of the Inspire: The Women’s Portrait Project exhibit on display during the SPARK Photo Festival (VentureNorth Building, 270 George Street North).
In addition, INSPIRE is honoured to be sharing exhibit portraits as part of the Women in Policing Symposium being held March 23rd at Fleming College. The symposium is a passion project of Detective Lindsey Leonard, who is one of the featured INSPIRE women. The symposium provides an opportunity for women interested in a policing career to meet local female officers and explore the profession at a hands-on and interactive venue.
