Victoria Police train their first female motorcycle cop. It happened some time ago but got little publicity. Hopefully other women will apply to join the solo unit. It seems to me that one of the deterants for female and smaller officers joining the VicPol solo unit has been the big beemers they would have to use. That deterant may have been reduced with the introduction of mid-sized police bikes to tackle Melbourne's chronic traffic congestion filtering where the big bikes can't. The next step should be bike patrols in pairs.
