The Need of Having More Women in the Police Force by Rahul
The number of women in the police force seems insufficient, especially when one sees the increasing involvement of women in terrorist activities. That being said, there is an urgent need for more women officers in the police force.
Universally, women are considered the weaker sex. Should police force being predominantly a male environment recruit women officers? Women are more sensitive to the needs of the public and therefore female officers are more trusted than their male counterparts. Joining the police force is also an ideal choice for women who are patriotic and wish to serve the country and its citizens. But above all, the police service provides a professional platform to the women, where they can prove that women are no less than men.
Gender inequality is one of the main reasons why there are only a handful women officers in the police force. Therefore, to attract more and more women towards police service, the government has to take some considerable steps during the selection and recruitment process.
Women must be encouraged to join the force especially by their family and friends. This is possible only if she is provided with better salary and incentives preferably equal to what the male officers are receiving. Women should feel empowered during recruitment; selection should be purely based on merit. In addition, a conducive environment in police force will make the female officers feel happy, safe and satisfied.
Government, in association with the police service, must create awareness through campaigns so that more women consider joining the police services.
