A Fort Pierce, Fla. police detective was among half a dozen of other women in law enforcement who received the 2006 FBI Miami Women in Law Enforcement Award, officials said Monday.

A ceremony was held for Daniela Dreizehnter in Miramar, who was the recipient on behalf of the Fort Pierce Police Department for the 2006 Women in Law Enforcement Conference, which was established by the FBI three years ago as a “means of promoting leadership and fellowship among women in law enforcement through presentations given by executive management and high-ranking officers from varied agencies,” a news release stated.

The ceremony, which was held in Miramar, honored Dreizehnter and other winners of the award. The conference will also honor representatives from various federal, state and local agencies “who have demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities during the past year,” the release stated.

This year’s conference will be held in Washington, D.C., and will be at the Capitol Hilton hotel on June 20, 21 and 22.

Approximately 250 law enforcement personnel are expected to attend the conference, which will focus on leadership issues. Other Florida recipients of the award include: Janine E. Chidsey, Captain, Hallandale Police Department; Tina M. Ciechanowski, Lieutenant, Sewall's Point Police Department; Cynthia D. Machanic, Lieutenant, Miami-Dade Police Department; Pavilion Steelman, Lieutenant, Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission; and Regina Lombard, Special Agent, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosive.
