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.
