Female CHP officers speak to students at Allan Hancock College

A California Highway Patrol helicopter drops in on students at Allan Hancock College.

Officer Pilot Diane Clark and Paramedic Flight Officer Dawn Hoff landed their CHP chopper on campus Tuesday night as part of a presentation for the Women in Public Safety Careers class.

The goal is to prepare women mentally and physically to enter the law enforcement or fire academies.

Both officers shared their personal experiences and encouraged others to follow in their footsteps.

"Women look at things maybe a little different than men and we have a lot to offer to the different departments and the different agencies," said Hoff. "I think it's a wonderful thing that more women are coming out."

The next Women in Public Safety Careers class starts on February 1.
