Current research on gender differences in policing is somewhat limited. Research studies that examine the relationship between police officers and ethics of care theory are further limited. This study evaluated gender differences in policing to determine whether ethics of care theories apply to female police officers. For the purposes of this study, approximately 400 sworn officers were sampled via survey. The anticipated results were: female officers are more likely to employ ethics of care in their policing methods as opposed to their male counterparts.
I would like to extend my gratitude to the members of my committee. I’d also like to extend a special thanks to my committee chair, Dr. Vic Bumphus. His direction helped me to make sense of all the information I had and piece together this thesis. Additionally, I’d like to express my sincerest appreciation for my family and friends who have encouraged me to strive for my goals and provided words of encouragement when I was feeling frustrated.
