The Role of Women in Policing Today
Over the past few decades, policing and police officers have changed. Policing used to lean heavily toward physical attributes, such as height, weight and brute strength. Over time, the attributes that were thought to make a good police officer have shifted.
The job still requires a great level of physical fitness; however, what’s more important now is good ethical character, and excellent interpersonal, problems solving and conflicts resolution skills.
This shift can be attributed to a new, proactive style of policing called “community policing”. Community policing is now used a crossed all part of the Gambia today, which help to reduced crimes related to police and women are in front line. It’s an integral part of how we work on a daily basis in our community.
Community policing is a philosophy that promotes organizational strategies which support the systematic use of partnerships and problems solving techniques. It pro-actively addresses the immediate conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder, and fear of crime.
Essentially, it’s about establishing relationships in the community — with residents, business owners and community leagues — and collaborating with those partners in order to pro actively reduce and prevent crime.
Power to the woman, Stay bless always!
