Sexual harassment and discrimination against female police officers


Law-enforcement is a male-dominated industry. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, about 12 percent of active duty police officers are female.

Unfortunately, many female police officers are subject to unfair treatment in their jobs - and this treatment is often due to discrimination by colleagues and supervisors alike. Female police officers, security guards, and other female employees in traditionally male-dominated professions may be subject to:

  • Name-calling
  • Inappropriate jokes and comments
  • Sexual advances by colleagues
  • Discrimination based on pregnancy

Female police officers are known to excel in many areas of their jobs. They are less likely to show aggression on the job, and less likely to use excessive and deadly force. They are more likely to use communication skills to deescalate situations that could turn violent.

Yet despite all this, female officers must overcome societal pressure and other obstacles - which often include discrimination and harassment.

Female police officers deserve equal treatment and respect in their jobs. When harassment or discrimination occurs - and the police department does nothing to correct the issue - it is advisable for the police officer to explore her legal options.

If you are a police officer who has experienced sexual harassment on the job, talk to an attorney from Bononi Law Group, LLP. Schedule a free consultation with an advocate for female police officers by calling 213-553-9200.
