Dorothy Schulz is Professor of Law, Police Studies, and Criminal Justice Administration at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She was the first woman captain to serve with the Metro-North Commuter Railroad Police Department and its predecessor department, the Conrail Police Department. Dorothy Schulz is a member of numerous police and academic associations, and has spoken at conferences of the International Association of Women Police, Women in Federal Law Enforcement, the National Center for Women & Policing, the Senior Women Officers of Great Britain, and the Canadian Police College. Dorothy Schulz is the author of From Social Worker to Crimefighter: Women in United States Municipal Policing and Breaking the Brass Ceiling: Women Police Chiefs and Their Paths to the Top.

 

According to a review of Breaking the Brass Ceiling: Women Police Chiefs and Their Paths to the Top, in Law Enforcement News, “Schulz has written a readable, straightforward book about female police chief executives. The subject is the changing role of women in the traditionally male-dominated field of law enforcement, and the book includes numerous biographical sketches of women who have risen to the top in the challenging world of policing. Schulz notes that it is only in the last two decades that women have moved into the top ranks of police management, whether as municipal police chiefs, county sheriffs, or colonels in state police agencies. Currently about 1 percent (200 or so) of the chiefs and sheriffs are women--unique trailblazers who have managed to break the "brass ceiling." Schulz clearly predicts that other women will inevitably follow in their footsteps. This well-written, well-researched book should be read by anyone interested in the changing face of policing in the US.

 

According to a review of From Social Worker to Crimefighter: Women in United States Municipal Policing, in Law Enforcement News, “Schulz offers a solid social history of the roles women filled in policing American communities from the 1820s through the 1980s. Not intended to be a theoretical or analytical treatment of either gender or law enforcement, it offers interesting narrative and presents with appropriate praise many actual women who faced high risks and high challenge as they sought first to improve policing and then to gain equal footing on patrol. This much-needed book will doubtless remain the authoritative work on the subject for some time and is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the development of women police or, indeed, the history of social control in the United States.
