Tamara: Women have been cops in the LAPD for over 100 years now, but does it still feel like you have to act like a man to fit in?
Chen: I think, I think fitting in is a trap. I’ve been sitting between two of the best cops in the state who had to navigate an avalanche of obstacles just to get to the mountain top. They didn’t do it by trying to fit in. They did it by, you know, by being stronger, smarter, more agile. They had to to navigate a system that still believes that being a girl is inherently soft or weak, as though empathy is somehow a liability. There isn’t a guy on the force who can do what these guys can do, and there sure as hell isn’t anyone tougher.

The Rookie Season 3 Episode 6 Quotes

What’s right and what is legal are very often all too different.

Prof. Ryan

Women make up only 12% of law enforcement, but they are attacked almost twice as often as male officers, and yet, male officers are three times more likely to fire their weapons, they are three times more likely to get injured while on duty, and they make up 95% of citizen complaints. Which begs the question, are women just better cops? Oh, you better believe it.
