But it doesn't mean it is easier. It means they need more female applicants to hire from.

How about just stop talking? Stop back peddling, stop trying to defend you're poorly worded comment, just stop.

Its not easier to get in as a female. The events are created to open the profession up to women who may not understand the process, the job, etc. Its there to answer questions about the testing and how to prepare. Going to one of these events doesn't mean you're hired.

As for it being "easier" for women to get hired....comparable to 1960 it is, seeing how women are now allowed to serve as police officers. So in that regard...its easier.

Good thing some people seem to think LE includes security at a construction site. Those who make comments and come back to backpedal by saying "I'm NOT this or I'm NOT that" generally ARE.

Rules of life.

Say I'm not a... - typically you are.
Say No offense... I intend to offend
Say I don't care what you think - you are desperate to know what I think.

I will stop backpedaling. All I want to clear up is that I'm not trying to discredit ANY women who are on the force. I am NOT sexist, I was merely attempting at some humor, and apparently it wasn't very tasteful. I apologize. I understand that any female applicant has to go through the exact same hiring process. I'm definitely not a troll, I love the amount of information I can find in these forums, and I enjoy exchanging relevant info regarding law enforcement. To be in LE is my dream, so I will take everything said into consideration. Thank you for not personally attacking me and offering advice!


Here's more advice. Your opinions and attitudes on issues will change as you age, your life experience broadens, etc. As such, what you say now may not be representative of your beliefs in a few years. The reason I mention this is for one simple reason...what you say here can't be undone. You may not be in the process now, or in a year from now, but 5 years down the line you may be and these posts may haunt you. No matter how much distance and life experience you've put between them. You can delete like a mad fiend, but people have quoted you so they are there for the world to see.

You need to take a step back, take a breath and look at your posts before you hit "submit". Just as an officer on the street has to when dealing with situations, they have to think about the ramifications of their actions and how said actions may be viewed by a varied audience, you have to do the same with posts. You can mean it one way, but, unfortunately, it can be read a totally different way.

Policing/LE is a small world and you may not realize who frequents this site or who people on this site know and LE LOVES to talk. Just keep that in mind. "Foot in mouth" disease takes on a whole new dimension in the internet age.

This needs to be remembered at all times. On facebook, on forums, on twitter and in life. You never know who has a camera. Youtube is just a click away.

Perfect example on Twitter is the OHL referee who was just suspended for the rest of the year because of comments made about Sault Ste Marie. His OHL career is probably done now.

Something along the lines of women in Sault Ste Marie being slim picking or something like that. Can't quote it but I could if I looked for it. Thought he was posting to a buddy but posted for the whole world to see.
