2018 has set a record high of 48% women seeking admittance to Police College this coming scholastic year.


Ann-Lisbeth Framaas, Head of Recording and Recruitment at The Norwegian Police University College (Politihøgskolen) reports of the high ratio of women wishing to join the ranks: ‘We’re pleased that the ratio of women among applicants is so high. Traditionally, police education has been a male-dominated field, but in recent years we’ve seen police education attracting many more women.’ said Framaas.
