Gonna talk about female cops and the three varieties of them you may encounter. I've both supervised and worked both under women, and whatever your ideology tells you about female units, they are completely different from men in this job.
The Bro - The Hoe - The B*tch
The Bro - Gender is minimized by "being one of the guys" Acts, and maybe believes, she's just as capable. Best case scenario, her shift treats her as a little sister. Does well in specialty units, but on the road she regularly gets hurt by getting into things she can't handle
The B*tch - Aggressive, nasty, uses her gender as a weapon and knows she can get away with it. The worst possible female to have on shift, she's not content to just wreck her boyfriend's life. She craves the power and sadism the job can bring, and not only limits it to men
The Hoe - Self-explanatory. Either by accident or design, she makes use of the men that surround her. Bad enough on road patrol, she's a nuclear bomb in jails or schools. Sex is all things to her: pleasure, advancement, retribution, entertainment.
Young man, avoid her.
There are two further sub-types that I would like to address further: The Den Mother & The Lesbian, derivatives of the Bro and B*tch respectively.
Den-Mom: Typically older and ranked, earlier in her career she was most likely a Bro but occasionally the B*tch reforms. She treats her rotation as an extended family, getting involved in their and their kid's lives; often winding up as a godmother. Great role for an admin sgt.
The Lesbian: Most indiscernible of the types, they can be equally B*tch or Bro. Masculine or feminine, aggressive or comradely; they regardless bring massive amounts of conflict and drama. I have personally known two of these who have been arrested for Domestic Violence.
These types become command staff most often, maximizing anguish. Many grow resentful not just at men or law enforcement, but at the concept of laws in general (no woman signed the constitution, after all). As chief, they will happily destroy an agency.
Typically the most effective, masculine and job-oriented, usually an athlete or prior military. They hurt group cohesion the least. You just have to be very, very careful as a shift sup to not let them start something they can't handle on their own.
They are massive liabilities for their sporadic and bad police work. No amount of training, guidance, or education will change her personal priorities. If you absolutely must, screw around with her at another department, never internal.
Years of careful & intimate observation have gone into this, I am very tall after all so you can trust my conclusions. Female cops are not a ~bad~ thing, but they are distinct. They're specialty units and should be understood as such.
