I have worked in law enforcement for 19 years. No matter what anyone tells you, your career comes to a screeching halt when you become pregnant and go on maternity leave. Opportunities pass you by that would provide you the experience needed to promote. As a result, women opt to not have children or take more administrative career paths in order to be mothers to their children. Law Enforcement is a very rewarding job, and women who chose this occupation are unique and selfless, but she has to go in with her eyes wide open.

Are Women and Men Treated Equally?
Recommend to Women?
If you go into the profession knowing what you are going to get into, then you may flourish, but a woman will have a hard time "having it all/doing it all" if she wants a balanced life/family and promotion..
