This compendium puts together a set of institutional policies and strategies drawn from countries around the world with a view to highlight different ways in which police institutions are working to achieve equality between policemen and women. The focus is on women in the first instance, recognizing that gender equality goes beyond women and requires measures aimed at members of all genders. The compendium rests on the belief that as a large government employer in any country, steps the police take towards women empowerment are bound to have spillover effects on integration of other diverse groups and communities as well.
