Leading the workforce, it's a woman's work!

Join us for an insider's peek into the everyday challenges faced by the first female Chief of Police in Miami Township, from shattered glass ceilings to championing a diverse team. Chief Sue Madsen will share her thoughts on making the hard calls, rallying the forces, and facing the pressures of real life-and-death crises. 

Chief Madsen balances her work, her family and her community with incredible humility and passion, tackling with compassion and tenacity some of the most urgent issues faced by our nation today: mental health and the opioid epidemic.

According to the Clermont Sun, after being promoted to Chief:

While she may be a part of history, Madsen is humble about the promotion.

“I don’t look at the woman aspect,” Madsen said. “I look at it as anyone else would.”

Madsen said she knows that being a chief requires dedication and flexibility.

“This job as a woman or a man is not for everyone,” Madsen said. “You have to really think about law enforcement and the different hours of work.”

Madsen said she finds the work rewarding and is thankful for those who have helped her along the way.

“I’ve always enjoyed law enforcement,” Madsen said. “I have so many people to thank who have taken a chance on me."

She said her continued goal is to make difficult situations easier for the residents she serves.

“Many people you meet are in traumatic situations,” Madsen said.

Madsen said, she tries to make bad situations easier by helping those involved understand all of their options and the processes involved. She said she has found this approach most effective in making victims and individuals involved more comfortable.

“Hopefully you’ve helped someone along the way,” Madsen said.

Bagels will be served!
