Women In Law Enforcement: On Patrol



We continue our series on females in law enforcement by talking with a patrol officer for the Sturgeon Bay Police Department.

Kourtney Krah, who specializes in sensitive crimes like child abuse and sexual assault, says she hasn't noticed any huge challenges being a female in a male dominated profession.

Krah says one part of the job that's a bit different than what she expected is that it's often difficult to know if her actions have helped people.

When asked about cases that stand out in her mind, Krah says there are some sexual assault cases that have surprised her.

Officer Krah, who's been with the Sturgeon Bay PD for 3 ½ years, says she thinks one possible advantage to being a female law enforcement officer is in the area of communication.

"They say females know how to talk to people and we can talk some people that are very angry down to a talking level and we can just have that understanding part of it," says Krah. "I think that makes it easier, depending on what kind of cases you're working. Sometimes females don't like to talk to males so having a female there for them to talk to is easier for them."
