Police Week: All of Our Blood Runs Blue

Some people think female officers are more emotional than male officers. This may be so. I don't care. This week I don't think it mattered. All of our blood runs blue.

Pregnancy and Policing

June 24, 2011
Once an officer shows her pregnancy physically, most officers agree she should take a light-duty job. The pregnancy adds stress to other patrol officers because they worry about her health and the baby's health. And she must deal with the perception that she looks more vulnerable.

Women's Wear

July 23, 2009

Gone are the days when a woman police officer was acting as a social worker with a badge, and they now fill as many roles as male police officers do.
