Women’s History Month: Detective Kim Ngo

This year, for Women’s History Month, we’re honoring our staff members and female MDT Partners who are truly making a difference in their field.

Please meet Detective Kimberly Ngo!


  • # of years in this field:

    • I have been in law enforcement for almost twelve years. I don’t know where the time has gone! I have been with Horsham Police since 2015 and a Detective since 2018.

  • This year’s theme for Women’s History Month is “Providing healing and Promoting Hope.” How do you provide healing and/or promote hope in your line of work?

    • In this line of work, we are usually meeting people on one of the worst days of their lives. I try to provide healing by really listening to what victims and witnesses of crimes have to say without judgement. Most of the time they just want to be heard. I would like to think I promote hope by letting people know they have someone in their corner who is going to help them through this time in their lives and through the criminal justice system as their case moves through it. I truly care about every single victim in my cases. I let them know I am available for them around the clock, and I really do mean it.

  • What sparked your interest in this field? What led you to pursue a career in law enforcement?

    • I have always been interested in true crime and the criminal justice system and knew since a very young age that I wanted to be in a career field where I was able to help others. I majored in criminal justice at Temple University and being in law enforcement blends all of that together. I really could not imagine doing anything else!

  • What advice would you have for another female considering a career in law enforcement?

    • My advice would be to just go for it! Law enforcement is still a male dominated field, but more and more females are entering into law enforcement careers. It can be difficult at times but having female police officers is a huge benefit to any department.
