Women Officers

For female forces, the Women Officers topic provides news, articles, and tactical tips to help take the fight to the bad guys. There was a time that a female officer was a rarity among the ranks, but today thousands of women stand on the thin blue line, serving on tactical teams, training other officers, working as detectives, and leading entire departments.

For more information on products for female officers, visit the PoliceOne Female Police Officers product section.
