Historically, women have been seen as a nuisance in the field of law enforcement; yet, research shows the nurturing characteristics of women is essential in neutralizing stressful situations and bringing balance to the public safety force overall. This presentation will explore the factors critical to attracting minority women college students to law enforcement careers, such as career options and opportunities for promotion. Additionally, we will discuss factors that prevent women from pursuing law enforcement careers such as sexism, sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.
