West Midlands Police need Muslim policewomen to deal with Muslim incidents involving women,(because lots don't speak English)here lies the problem,they are prevented by men to integrate within the community.

How could a woman in a burka chase a criminal wearing all that?

Anyhow, a sign of the times. People need to accept it.

The burka is not just a face mask, it is a political uniform, a statement about the control and ownership of women in Islam. It is outrageous that the police would even need to consider whether this extreme covering is acceptable attire for a police officer, it is not. This must not be allowed, ever.

I wouldn't have any dealings with a police officer who was hiding their face from me, or a doctor, nurse or teacher for that matter.

A muslim police woman can wear trousers same as a none muslim one, Sikhs wear there headscarfs in the police force so why shouldn't muslims wear theres, it makes no difference to their ability to police if they choose to cover their hair or whole face seeing as verious police units cover their faces anyway, all police where their number to identify them.
Headscarf covering the head is different to a complete face covering.

If, as most ignorant people believe, Muslim women are prevented from integrating with the community and with men, then tell me this......where will these Muslim policewomen come from? "Just popping out to the shops" whilst they do their shift?? It's a comment by the police chief that's been jumped on by the usual suspects......as most coppers would say.....nothing to see here, move on.

I deleted my comment as I didn't want to get drawn into a religion debate.
However just because you and I welcome people from all over the world, it doesn't hide facts. For example, just because I am non-religious, it doesnt mean my stance automatically becomes the majority.
If the most recent census says that 59.4% of the population are Christians, is that not the majority?

Although there of course many African and Polish Christians, non-UK born citizens represent approx 10% of the total of the UK Christian population, so definitely not most.

You are forgetting that the majority of people who actually believe this rubbish are people who are uneducated and jobless....factor in the problem that most of these people have a reading age of 10-13 and you will realise it's pointless trying to talk sense to them.

No they are asking why as part of a recruitment drive Chief Constable David Thompson said West Midlands police has 'no barriers relating officers wearing Muslim dress which covers the face' and perhaps wondering if other minorities because of 'cultural sensitivity' would be permitted to wear their 'extreme form of dress'.

Thanks. Was going to point out that actual quote from the chief constable but then thought it's not my fault people can't read.

I would have thought that a full head and face covering would make it very difficult for anyone to have a true sense of their surroundings. Whilst the same applies to a police motorcyclist they do have the kind of helmet that can be raised to engage in communication and it does also offer good protection if they are caught off guard. I would have thought for the safety of a woman officer this idea will never be put in place.

The more I think about this the more I think it's a complete non story. Whenever I've have tried to communicate in any way with a woman wearing full covering it's pretty much been a one way short conversation. I would have thought that if a Muslim woman chose to dress with full face covering then the likelihood of her wanting such an 'in your face' career would be highly unlikely. Unless of course she was interested in an office job within the force. I personally would find it quite a strange experience if I went into my local police station and the person on the enquiry desk was decked out in kit like this.

Exactly. But stating that there are 'no barriers' gets turned into something else by those who have an agenda.

Obviously it's not going to happen but some want to believe that stuff like this is a possibility because it fits their worldview.
