Importance in Policing
Police experts nationwide have long believed that increasing the number of female oﬃcers is key to the success of community policing goals. Women can perform all facets of policing as well as their male counterparts, and they also have a natural ability to verbally deescalate volatile situations.
FINDING THE PERFECT FIT
Young women and second career women alike ﬁnd that police work combines diverse challenges, good pay and beneﬁts and the strong appeal of community involvement. All women receive the same training as their male counterparts, which enables them to move into a variety of areas within the department without the barriers often experienced in other occupations.
