In a field predominated by men, women in law enforcement still tend to stand out. It's a field defined by dangers and takes a toll on its ranks regardless of gender. We took the time to sit down with several women from different departments in the area about what the job involves, advice they have for women looking to get into the field and the very real challenges they face.
