This project reflects research conducted as part of a course project designed to give students experience in the research process.

Course: CJS 409



The issue of women having a different experience than men in law enforcement agencies deserves to be carefully looked at by others because it is a matter of equality. The purpose of this capstone assignment is to find out if women in law enforcement are held to a different standard than men in law enforcement. The goal is to see if there is a disparity and if so, see if there are similarities or differences between different women in different departments or ranks within a department. The study would accomplish the purpose of this research by gathering information from different women in law enforcement to see if there are similarities in their experiences in law enforcement. My study would accomplish this by gathering information (interviews), asking open-ended questions of participants, analyzing data (put into categories and themes), and looking for patterns in the data.
