Gender Responsive Policing and Women in Law Enforcement Comments from the Guest Editor

When one thinks of the interaction of women and the policing
profession, three main issues come to mind. What steps have law enforcement
administrators taked to ensure that females are properly represented in front
line, supervisory, and executive positions? How do criminal justice officials
interact and deal with female victims of crime and women offenders? And in
countries like Pakistan and others in the region, have gender responsive
measures been implemented to address the sensitive issues involving domestic
violence, sexual abuse and harassment, and the ideological and cultural
constraints on contact and interaction with females?
