Durban unit’s female cops: Men bully us

2011-06-22 11:13

Johannesburg - Durban's police dog unit is plagued by chauvinism, according to female police officers in the unit, the Times reported on Wednesday.

Seven policewomen were requesting transfers out of the unit due to "bullying" from their male colleagues.

This began when a male officer allegedly shot one of his female colleagues with a pellet gun.

Three of the women, who asked not to be named, said the men called them "lazy beauty queens". They claimed dogs had been taken from them and given to male officers.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said the allegations had prompted an internal investigation.

"If found to be true, those who are implicated will be dealt with immediately."

    If they can't handle their fellow male officers in the workplace, how the hell will they cope with armed criminals out to kill them?

  • stone.i.macina - 2011-06-22 12:18

    Now why would someone bother to call you a lazy beauty queen if you aren't!!?

      You have to agree with sobeit: If they can't handle their fellow male officers in the workplace, how the hell will they cope with armed criminals out to kill them? THis is a tough job - if you can't handle the heat, stick to your pamper parties!

      Caz - 2011-06-22 15:45

      @Mariana - why should they have to deal with it from their male officers, sexual harrasment is not the womans fault!!! Do you have to deal with it in your work place. if so, GOOD LUCK!!!

      Mariana - 2011-06-23 09:46

      Men will never grow-up - live with it!

    shooting a woman with a pellet gun is over the top not asking for special treatment just respect STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN - EVERYWHERE - IT BEGINS WITH YOU

    Then these guys call themselves police officers. What a joke. There seem to be as many criminals inside the police, as outside the police nowadays

      Maybe 7 women should be strong enough to stand up to their male colleagues, but they shouldn't have to in the first place. We really should measure the male cops' beer-belly to check that they are not trying to hide something (bribes or even evidence) in there.
