Defending people from the predations of criminals is hard, dangerous work, and work which demands respect. Women looking to join law enforcement to do some good in their community have a bit of an uphill battle in the respect department, especially if they’re attractive. It’s unfair, but it exists.
Let’s take a look at women around the world who are dedicating their lives to protecting innocent people within their countries and at the same time, looking great while they do so.
We advise you use real caution if you run afoul of any of these ladies. Their beauty doesn’t mean they’re any less tough!
Sweden is a relatively peaceful nation with fairly minimal problems with crime, but their police must be able to swim 150 meters doing the breaststroke and be able to pull someone out of water when that person is drowning. Swedish police are also armed and carry a gun as a standard issue piece of equipment.
Israel probably has the toughest police force in the world, as all the ladies pictured here will also have completed military service prior to signing up to fight crime. They carry a weapon standard, and can run 1 kilometer in under 6.5 minutes. They must also be able to do 22 pushups.
Romania is a small European nation, but one which takes law enforcement very seriously indeed. Not only do the police wander about fully armed, but they must be able to run 2 kilometers in under 11 and a half minutes. They can also hurl a heavy medicine ball a minimum of 7 meters.
The Eastern European nation is a relatively peaceful place to be, and hasn’t got a huge crime rate, but that doesn’t mean that its police officers aren’t well prepared. Not only can they shoot and drive a car that turns on a dime, but they can also use sniper rifles and grenade launchers!
8. North Korea
You really, really don’t want to get into trouble with the law in North Korea. They will send you away for a very, very long time. Also, as with many police forces around the world, this lady carries a handgun and she’s got the authority to use it whenever she needs to.
