If a woman is determined to do a job that has been dominated by males for such a long time then she should go out of her way to fulfill the requirements of the job not lower them and the officer's courage. I am adding eight words here because i dont want to write anything else.
Unfortunately police officers will need to be able to protect themselves and others in physically dangerous situations. An offender is very unlikely to be less violent towards a woman police officer simply because she is a woman. She needs to be able to protect herself as well as her male counterparts are able to.
Women and men have different bodies, and they should have
different physical standards in the police force. The only standard that should be universal is
the ability to take a perpetrator down to the ground. This can be achieved easily by smaller
officers by studying specialized martial arts such as Krav Maga.
