No it has nothing to do with an ideal world,it has everything to do with keeping the peace,women police officers in a lot of situations are better
than male police officers when dealing with women and in some domestic disputes etc.
Same goes for Police officers from ethnic minorities,an officer from ones own country of origin has a better chance of not offending someone in any
circumstance that may arise.
sex and race but by descriminating in this way they are also decriminating against people whom may have better qualifications/experiences for the job?
and in doing so are making the police force weaker in the process.
No again the police force is stronger because it will work more effectively with the right people,where its not necessarily due to qualifications.
