What can be done to stop the declining numbers of women in law enforcement? If information is power, then "Women Police: Portraits of Success" could well reverse that trend. Author Patricia Lunneborg traveled from Anchorage to Brooklyn and points in between to conduct in-depth interviews with over 50 women officers, from small-town sergeant to the head of the Alaska State Patrol. What drew them to the job in the first place? What keeps them on the job? What are their daily challenges and satisfactions? How do they balance work and family? What are their ideas for improving all aspects of the system--recruiting, training, retention, and promotion? "Portraits" is a powerful recruitment tool, an essential primer for women thinking about a job in law enforcement. The book also serves the general public seeking answers to what the job is really like, career counselors, police recruiters, and law enforcement agencies at city, state, and federal levels trying to attract more women to protect and serve. Written in a direct, personal style, this unique book belongs on library shelves in Career Counseling, Women's Studies, Society and Justice, Sociology. Where else can a woman learn if the police service is for her and the general public find out what the job is really about?
