As head of the policewomen's bureau for twelve years and a member of the force since 1911, the author tells a story which supplements from the women's angle previous books of its type by men. She tells how she came to choose this career, her early training and experience, and the steps leading to her present job. She discusses the fields where women are used and the constructive work they do. Interesting reading, with a vocational slant, and a unique human document. Sell to those who like unusual women biographies, to civic groups, to social service workers.
