Training police in Sri Lanka: A woman in a man's world

07 March 2017

Nanna Zerlang works for the ICRC in Sri Lanka, training the national police on international standards of policing. A former policewoman, she is currently the only woman working in this role for the ICRC. Nanna uses her 30 years of experience – in the Danish police force and abroad – to help police officers become better at what they do.

I believe police represent the population, and more than 50% of the world's population are women. So we need more women in the police force.
