Background: About 75 women, aged between 25 and 35 years, began training at the new policewomen's school in Rome, Italy, Mar 18. The course lasts five months, and they will leave the school with the rank of "inspectress."
Candidates must have a degree in law before being allowed to take the preliminary examinations. After training, the women will be sent to various police stations throughout Italy. The new corps has not yet got its own uniform: Government officials are still studying the matter.
In the classrooms, the women study the many different aspects of law. They learn how fingerprints can track down criminals ..... and they are taught judo for self-defence. And one of the instructors explains the different types of body injuries likely to be encountered after blood-stained clothes are found in serious cases.
