On the Eve

It’s been 100 years since the Vancouver Police Department hired the first police woman.

The Vancouver Police Museum will be releasing their interactive exhibit on June 30, 2012.

100 years of women in policing.

1912 to 2012 – how cool is that?

There are a couple of big events planned for the coming months, including the exhibit at the museum, and yes, I’ll be talking (and Tweeting) about them more as they come closer.

Until then, here is a post from May 2010, titled Women in Policing, where a prospective police applicant asked about the obstacles faced by women trying to get in to law enforcement.

My response was par for course, so what I’d like to draw your attention to are the comments left by several readers, many of whom are current serving officers with agencies from across North America.

What would you add?
