LADIES FIRST @ THE KCPD!!! GRADUATING CLASS TOPS KANSAS CITY POLICE RECORD FOR FEMALE DIVERSITY!!!
Take a look at progress on equality from the Kansas City Police Department:
From The Blog Of KCPD Chief Forté: Females comprise nearly 1/3 of graduating Academy class.
"This graduating class has the highest percentage of females that anyone on the department can recall. Nearly a third – 10 out of the 31 – are women. Women bring unique strengths and perspectives that can be lacking in the male-dominated field of law enforcement, and I’m happy to see them filling our ranks."
Once again, diversity is an important goal and making the police force more inclusive not only benefits all of Kansas City but offers incentive for crooks to keep their composure given that nobody wants to get beat up by a lady before getting sent off to jail . . .
