No matter what type of career it may be, a woman has two jobs when it comes to being a mother. Gary Harki of the Charleston Gazette wrote a short article titled Troopers Balance Law Enforcement With Motherhood, in which he interviews three female state troopers.
As being a mother in law enforcement continues to become more popular, motherly instincts have their way of playing a role on the job. Captain S.A. Hatten of South Charleston notes “if there are little kids involved, if it’s a domestic or sexual abuse, being a mother kicks in.”
TLC also has a show called The Police Women of Broward County which follows four everyday women who take their kids to school while simultaneously arresting criminals and busting up drug rings.
Being a mother is a constant job, and we thank all mothers out there who are working nonstop to keep the peace in their home and on the streets.
