Only in the Philippines: All cops assigned of a town in the province of Siquijor were all females

In Siquijor, Philippines  the municipality in the island province of Siquijor became the first town in the Philippines to have an all-female police force, the Philippine National Police said.

Police officers are employees of a law enforcement agency in their country.

They are warranted by the government to enforce the law by arresting criminals and detecting and preventing crimes.

Meanwhile, Police Col. Ildebrandi Usana said the “Mariang Pulis” highlighted how women all over the world had proven to be among the most efficient members of any workforce.

"They were trained on driving, shooting, arresting techniques and other police operation and intervention procedures such as checkpoint, automated fingerprint identification system and first aid, among others,” she said.

"Mariang Pulis, as a show window, will also tell the world that the PNP is a gender-friendly organization,” Usana said.

Maria, a coastal municipality that is fast becoming a popular tourist destination for its white sand beaches and mystical folktales, took the government’s program of women empowerment one step further by setting up a police force entirely composed of female officers.

“This move will strongly advance women empowerment in promoting public safety and security services at all levels of police units and offices in the region,” Police Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas, Central Visayas police director, said in a statement.

The PNP launched “Mariang Pulis” that seemed to be a spinoff of “Mamang Pulis,” which implied a male-dominated police force.

The all-female police station operates with 21 officers, said to be the ideal size for a municipality larger than Maria, which is 53.4 square kilometers, or about 15 percent of Siquijor’s total land area.

At the police station’s launching ceremony, Siquijor Gov. Zaldy Villa said the preference for women in the province’s police force, led by its police director, Police Col. Angela Rejano, would prove that it was a peaceful community.
