Lighting the way for Kiwi policewomen

ELIZABETH FLORENCE PARKER (nee BENNETT) JULY 28, 1929 JUNE 20, 2013

In September 1956, Betty Bennett was one of the first 10 policewomen in New Zealand to be trained alongside male colleagues. She was also one of the first three Maori policewomen to appear in uniform.

She didnt know it then, but she was destined to achieve other important firsts during her career with Police. She is considered a pioneering figure of New Zealand Police, but one of her significant achievements came about almost by accident. By 1959, Betty, who had been working as a detective, had passed the exam to qualify for promotion to sergeant, but at that time there was no pay scale for women above the rank of constable.

As it turned out, her impending promotion became a catalyst for an urgent review of the pay of policewomen.

Born in the Thames area, Betty was one of seven siblings. She was always a practical, no-nonsense sort of person who just got on and did her job. When she was awarded the British Empire Medal in 1962 it was not just for becoming the first woman to reach the rank of sergeant, but also for her outstanding leadership skills.

In 1966, she added another first to the list when, with her appointment to inspector, she became New Zealands first commissioned woman officer. At that time, she transferred to Police National Headquarters in Wellington. She told Valerie Redshaw, author of the book Tact and Tenacity, New Zealand Women in Policing, that one of the first issues to come up was how people would address her. It was such a novelty having a woman inspector, that people didnt know the proper form.

It was decided among colleagues that to my face you can call me what you like, but when the hierarchy are around you had better call me Maam. Redshaw also recorded that Betty became a much-admired boss. She had excellent communication skills, a practical and pragmatic approach to police tasks, whether routine or exceptional, and above all a wonderful sense of humour.

A sense of humour was probably vital for policewomen in an earlier era. Redshaw also records the day Betty began her training. Betty was introduced to Sergeant Richardson and another man who took her for a short ride in a Ford Consul car to a warehouse. She had no explanation as to what was going on. At the warehouse an elderly gentleman handed her a Bible and asked her read what she was later to discover was the police oath. From there the group went back to the police station, Sergeant Richardson went into his office and she was told to wait outside. Worried as time went on that she would miss another appointment, she knocked on the sergeants door and told him that she would have to go.

While she cannot recall his exact words, it was something like, Madam, if you want to leave the police, you have to give three months notice.

When she had risen to the rank of inspector, Betty toured all stations where policewomen were employed, checking on their welfare and taking note of their concerns. She told the Otago Daily Times that women had proved their worth as members of New Zealand Police and provided ample evidence that they are more than equal to any situation that might arise.

In 1969, Commissioner George Urquhart announced the establishment of a new national womens division, with Betty as its head. However, the project did not proceed and Betty retired from Police in 1970.

In 1973 she married another former police officer, Frank Parker, whom she had originally met during training at Trentham in the 1950s. Frank was the publican at the Railway Tavern in Wellington and the couple went on to run a pub in Dannevirke, a motel in Palmerston North and, eventually, the Rangitikei Club in Feilding, where Betty was also a fixture on the golf scene.

She was playing golf until a few weeks before her death at the age of 83.

Jean Aleen May DOUGALL MBE - Feb 27th 1933 - Nov 14th 2012

IPA Member 1454

Region 4 Wellington 14/11/2012

New Zealand Police Chief Inspector Retired.

Messages and tributes may be placed in Jeans tribute book below or sent C/o PO Box 14-366, Kilbirnie 6241.

Jeans Funeral Mass will be celebrated at the Church of St Anne, Emmett Street, Newtown on Tuesday 20 November at 10am, thereafter burial at sea.

Jean Dougall was a trailblazer for women in police, but you wouldnt hear her say that. It wasnt her style to make grandiose statements, especially about herself. She was famously reticent, self effacing and private.

Those personality traits were made plain at her funeral in November last year, held at her church, St Annes in Newtown, Wellington. At her request there were no eulogies and no funeral programme. A letter was read out in which she barely touched on her achievements, but instead thanked people who had made a contribution to her life.

However, despite her best efforts, there is no hiding the significance of Jean Dougalls place in the history of the New Zealand Police. Her sheer competence in the workplace at a time when women were not considered really important to the service ensured she will not soon be forgotten.

After a decade of nursing, Jean, born and educated in Wellington, joined Police in 1961. She spent a year in uniform before transferring to CIB, where she worked for the next 20 years, actively involved in most of the homicide inquiries in and around Wellington.

Jean was devoted to CIB and the sentiment seemed to be mutual. Quoted in Valerie P Redshaws book Tact and Tenacity:New Zealand Women in Policing, Jean said she was indebted to fellow detectives who supported, encouraged and pushed her. Although factions in the police culture were anti-women, individuals who fitted in could be accepted, Jean wrote.

That acceptance extended to her rising to the rank of detective sergeant in 1967 and, in 1977, a historic promotion to detective inspector she was the second woman to reach commissioned rank (the first was Betty Bennett, who had left Police in 1970). Jean was, at one time or another, in charge of all the Wellington CIB squads, including drug, vice, in-service training and crime prevention.

In 1985 she was promoted to chief inspector, the highest rank a woman had attained in Police at that time.

Earlier, in 1972, Jean had achieved another milestone she became the first policewoman in Australasia to be appointed to fulltime prosecution duties. Redshaw notes that such was the novelty at the time, the senior sergeant had to get permission from the magistrate for a woman to appear in court. The magistrate was reported as saying: Why not, anythings good for a laugh.

Jean made good on that flippant observation when she was hastily called down to the No 1 Courtroom where the daily guilty plea cases were heard. She recalled: In the No 1 Courtroom I had to prosecute a case I had not even had time to read through. The witness was duly called and I asked a couple of questions, which did not seem to relate to the case. I was frantically going through the file, trying to find a brief of evidence when the magistrate looked at me and said, Detective Sergeant, are you intending to take part in this? I got flustered and replied, I dont seem to have any briefs on I mean on the file. I am sure that I won the case because the magistrate was still laughing.

She was also the first woman trainer for CIB. She is remembered by one former colleague as a top-class trainer who set the bar high and challenged others to raise the standard even further. She was known to be fearlessly loyal and protective of her work teams.

The ever-modest Jean said in Tact and Tenacity that much of her career was happenstance, but she did allow herself some satisfactions. She was proud of the way CIB always worked together to resolve problems and she was pleased that her study for a BA in education had given her an abiding interest in training. She prepared lesson notes on how to treat rape complaints and devised a personalised system of learning that could be applied in Police training.

Despite all her firsts, Jean never saw herself as a torchbearer for women in police, Redshaw says. Doing a good job was what mattered most to her. She didnt have a lot of female colleagues in police. Men held her in high regard. She was always trying to do her best, Redshaw says.

During the 1981 anti-Springbok Tour demonstrations in Wellington, a group of protesters were headed towards the Central Police Station in Waring Taylor St. Redshaw writes that Jean, who was about to go off duty, immediately got into uniform and organised the defence of the station.

Jean was awarded an MBE for services to Police in 1986 and retired, aged 55, in 1987. As Redshaw notes, it was then that a softer side of the highly capable police officer emerged. She devoted her time to the church, to volunteer work and to handicrafts, including becoming skilled at machine knitting.

She remained a very private person. Having outlived her only sibling, Jean had no extended family, so it was fitting that Police provided pallbearers six senior women police officers and granted her request to be draped in a Police flag and buried at sea. Police Commissioner Peter Marshall said he was pleased that Jeans police family could pay that final tribute to such a stellar career.

Lois COPP

IPA Member 2114

Region 4 Wellington 19/08/2011

One of New Zealand's earliest uniformed policewomen.

Story from www.stuff.co.nz

Lower Hutt's first uniformed woman police constable was appointed to the police 60 years ago on January 26, 1953, and was assigned to her role at Lower Hutt on January 17, 1956.

She was Constable Lois Ivy Collins. Like the current 43 women stationed at Lower Hutt today, she took her oath to serve our present Queen. Unlike her 43 successors her role focused on women and children only.

Her appointment, her restricted role and the innovation of her uniform as the visible presence of the police came when the Hutt Valley was experiencing the nationally significant post-war juvenile crime and population boom.

Her appointment gave her a vitally important role in the social history of the Hutt Valley.

War babies who had grown up with fathers absent fighting overseas and who had possibly also been the victims of their father's post traumatic war stress, reached puberty.

In Constable Collins' role, the minors and women who were victims of sexual predators and other crime had a visible representative of the long arm of the law dedicated to their protection on their turf.

Her appointment was part of a police strategy to address the doubling of sexual delinquency charges in the two years to 1954, a problem which was still being reported on by Senior Sergeant Quartley of Lower Hutt as being significant in 1957.

An example of a man luring a 15-year-old away from her schooling into a life of sex, make-up and booze is given in an Evening Post article in August 1954 which reports on a man charged with carnal knowledge of a minor.

A national report by the Special Committee on Moral Delinquency in Children and Adolescents was tabled in Parliament as the Mazengarb Report.

Sherwood Young, editor of With Confidence and Pride: policing the Wellington Region 1840-1992, wrote: "There was little the police could do directly to solve the problem aside from putting more officers into the areas of greatest need."

Constable Collins in navy blue serge uniform went into local schools as part of a positive police response to these issues.

By the time she took up her work in the Hutt Valley she was in the top third of New Zealand's most experienced policewomen, according to a 1956 police survey of Age, Service, Marital Status and Distribution of Policewomen, published in Valerie Redshaw's book, Tact and Tenacity.
