Fairfield and Cabramatta Police Celebrate 100 Years of Female Cops

Fairfield and Cabramatta police have celebrated 100 years of women in the force with two grand baton relays through the region’s streets.

On Wednesday, Fairfield Detective Superintendent Peter Lennon joined 15 of his female officers for their baton relay.

Superintendent Doreen Cruickshank regaled the crowd with tales of the early days of her career, when female police had to get permission to be married and were kept in desk jobs.

Cabramatta police held their own celebratory relay on Friday.

Students from Cabramatta High watched the relay and learned a few tips about policing from female officers.
