Why should more females think about becoming a police officer?

I think to do this job, it has to be a calling, and it's not a job that just anyone can do. But we receive a lot of training and education to assist us so that we can do our jobs to the best of our abilities. Also, being in law enforcement, you're not just limited to one thing. There are so many positions that you can do at every level. For example, you can be a patrol officer, School Resource Officer, Community Police Officer, K=9 Officer, Community Response Team Officer, or Traffic Officer. There are also many specialty units such as SWAT, EOD, and the Mounted Unit. When you're ready to promote, there are over 15 different sections you can work in. There's a place here for everyone that they can succeed in.
