  • Female officers and pregnancy...

    Hey everyone! I am wanting to get some feedback from ladies who were on regular patrol and got pregnant. This was a planned pregnancy but it didn't dawn on the to sort out the specifics until it actually happened!

    When did you opt to take a light duty position? Did you follow your heart or doctors orders? Did your department make you right away? Any other light to shine on the topic?

    I have already advised my LT and Chief, so that someone is aware, but I don't know when I should get off patrol. I am actually a school resource officer and it's not uncommon for me to have to deal with a fight or conduct a restraint. Not to mention on the "what ifs" that come with the profession.

    Thanks in advance!

    Our department's policy is light duty as immediately as possible upon notification.

      Ours too....last thing admin wants is to have an officer lose a baby.

    What did your LT and Chief say when you told them? They SHOULD have policies in place and answers to your questions...

      Our department puts you on light duty immediately upon notification, they just don't want to take the chance some freak incident causes a loss. If you department has no policy, check with the HR department for the city you work for....some dept's don't have separate policies from the city.

        Pregnant officers are removed from patrol immediately upon notification.
