Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Have you seen it? Have you seen it? Man I am addicted to watching that show. These women are strong police women serving the county of Maricopa in Az. I love to watch this show because these women police make huge impacts on their community. On last nights show one of the officer ladies went to speak to a girl scout troop of girls ages 4-6 maybe and she was just empowering them that girls and do anything men do, especially jobs. All the little girls listening looked so excited to see a women officer and were like in awh of her pink handcuffs. It was really cute and I just thought that what a positive outlook she gave these little ones.

In another section of the show another police officer responded to a house call of family violence. She arrived and turns out it was a father and his daughter who were engaging in a dispute. The call was that she was using a deadly weapon. Turns out he father said she was throwing knives around. How scary right!!!!? So, the officer intervened and was talking to the teen nice and trying to connect with her so that the situation could be dissolved. People sometimes really dont see the impact that can be made by a women police officer. I believe that gender in this profession speaks volumes. My mom always had wanted to become a police officer but as she thought about it more when she was growing up she concluded that society saw it as a MAN's job. So to close, I am glad a show like this is on tv. Women can do anything a man can do, and in some cases better!

Here is a link, learn more and watch the show!! I feel its sooo empowering to women!
