A Fair Cop celebrates the journey of 100 years of female police officers in the West Midlands. It starts with the early days of the West Midlands predecessor forces and goes on to tell the personal stories of our pioneer policewomen. This book describes the challenges they went through to enter a male dominated world and shows just how long it took to strive for equality. With detail about the early crimes and events dealt with by the Women Police of Birmingham City Police and never before published pictures from the archives of West Midlands Police, A Fair Cop tells the story of some inspirational women and charts the 'female firsts' of every rank and specialism in the West Midlands.
