RUMOUR CONFIRMED

Two entire north metro divisions of Victoria Police have marked the 100 year anniversary of women in the force with female-only operational shifts.

Madge Connor and Elizabeth Beers were appointed as agents in Victoria Police on this day in 1917.

“We thought it was a really good way to celebrate,” she said.
