The purpose of this paper is to examine the work situation and career opportunities among women police. We use a gender perspective as a guideline during the examination. Despite words of being, and work to create, gender neutral organization, women police is greatly underrepresented. The interviewed women gave a picture of an organization in which they had to work harder than their male colleagues to advance. The biggest problem seems to lie in the hierarchy dominated by male police officers and the fact that women, during pregnancy, are missing out on valuable time at work, and thus, also essential experiences for future career advancement. The police uniform are not designed to fit a woman, some elderly male officers are condescending towards woman police and the overall structure of the police organization are not beneficial for women police who wants to advance. However, maybe it’s not always an even number of people in opposite gender that’s should be the goal for the organization. But in the end, it’s always important to work for gender equality in the organization. A organization in which men and women have the same opportunities may lead to get the right person to the right place, and that in the end generates success.
