A Critical Evaluation: Women in the Punjab Police

Kamran Adil

Abstract
The statistics regarding women employed within the Punjab police are not very
impressive. The three Punjab female police stations are situated in Rawalpindi, Lahore
and Faisalabad. In the Punjab, the supervisory officer to constabulary ratio is 1:27.
However, female police officials are not exceedingly represented within the supervisory
ranks, nor are they involved in criminal investigations. The purpose of this brief article
is not to discuss the quantitative side of females working in law enforcement in the
Punjab, but rather the article is aimed at analyzing the qualitative side of this critical
issue.
