History

Women Behind the Badge

Female Officer

Brandon Police Service hired its first woman constable in 1979, and over the years the number of women in the service has dramatically increased. Carol Fisher was the first woman constable to be hired on in Brandon, and was also the top applicant of both men and women who applied for the job.

Traffic Stop Today, women serve in every facet of policing, and in all levels including senior positions. Women also make up more than half of the civilian positions at the service. In Brandon, females have been working side-by-side with males in policing for over 30 years. During this time women have become an integral part in every aspect at Brandon Police Service.

To date we have 12 female members that work in a variety of positions within the Police Service. Women bring certain qualities and skills to the job which are essential and fully acknowledged by their peers and the public.
