100 Years of Women in Policing

Tasmania Police 100 Years of Women in Policing logo

Tasmania Police celebrates a significant milestone in October 2017, marking 100 years of women in policing.

Throughout this centenary year we will be recognising the contributions and achievements of women in Tasmania Police from 1917 – 2017.

Roles have changed significantly during the last 100 years for everyone in policing and we will showcase some of the quirkier aspects of the positions that women held in our organisation.

The challenges faced and achievements attained by those women have contributed in shaping the Tasmania Police Service of today, a workplace that acknowledges the benefits of diversity and equality and is representative of the community we serve.

Celebrations began on, International Women’s Day,  8 March 2017.
