An Examination of the Women in Law Enforcement

What Makes Policewomen So Rare?

- Amalia Crawford, Endicott College

Amalia Crawford is a 2016 graduate of Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts.  This past semester she conducted her senior thesis on "What is it that makes policewomen so rare?" She solicited input from various women in law enforcement throughout Massachusetts with the use of an online survey.  The purpose of the survey was to help understand a police woman's experience as well as to identify the ways to recruit and retain more women in law enforcement.  The survey focused on the reasons why women chose law enforcement as a career and their opinions of women in policing. 

The attached links is her final paper and her power point presentation that she was invited to present at the New England Association of Criminal Justice Science Conference in Rhode Island in June 2016.
