Women Police Service WWI Colouring Page


During the First World War, women in Britain took on roles which had previously only been available to men. In December 1915, in Grantham, Mrs Edith Smith was the first woman to be sworn in as an official police officer with powers of arrest. Something like 4,000 women around the country volunteered for the Women's Police Service, patrolling public areas and munitions factories. After the war, in 1920, it was recognised that women could serve as police officers, but their roles were restricted to dealing with women and children.
