An Exploration of Crime by Policewomen

without comments

A research study on crime by policewomen forthcoming in the journal Police Practice and Research has been prepublished and is available online. The article, An Exploration of Crime by Policewomen, is co-authored by Phil Stinson of Bowling Green State University, Natalie Todak of Arizona State University, and Mary Dodge of the University of Colorado Denver. Findings of the study indicate differences exist between crimes committed by policemen and policewomen, as well as by policewomen and women in general. Crime by policewomen is most often profit-motivated. Policewomen had fewer years of service and lower ranks, committed less violent crimes, and were more likely to receive suspensions for off-duty crimes compared to their male peers.
