Race/ethnicity And The Attitudes Of College Students Toward Women In Policing
MetadataShow full item record
The attitudes toward women in policing were compared among college students from the three racial/ethnic groups of African American, Hispanic, and White. Because of the limited literature available, this research explored Hispanic students' attitudes toward women in policing. With the influx of the Hispanic population within the United States, it is important to focus on the attitudes of this race/ethnicity toward women in policing. The findings revealed that the respondents generally supported women in policing, however males were less supportive than females. This analysis also indicates that African American, Hispanic, and White college students are all generally supportive of women in policing.
