This week’s Bloglight is from the Officer.com website in the Police Life category. John Wills, a former Chicago police officer who is now retired from the FBI is a freelance writer, author and contributor to various print and online law enforcement publications. In this blog post, he discusses women as police officers. John’s verdict?
“Are there female cops who I absolutely would not work with? You bet, but I’ve also had my share of male officers who I wouldn’t go through a door with either. Our sisters in blue have proven that they belong. Anyone who questions their skills and abilities doesn’t have a clue. When they put that uniform on, get into that vest, and hitch up their duty belt, they rightly take their place on the front lines.”
