"This book is unique in that it offers an insightful (and unprecedented) view of women in law enforcement. I believe that this book is one of a kind in this regard." - Alejandro del Carmen, University of Texas-Arlington
"I think that the subject matter of this manuscript is very timely because so many women are entering professional fields that have been dominated by men in the past. A Lot of time and effort have been put into this research." - Corrine Koepf, Regional Community Policing Center, University at Buffalo, NY
