Report No. 84

3.23. Investigation an arduous task.-

That apart, investigation of an offence is not a light duty. We have the highest opinion and respect for women's intelligence, ability and competence, yet we feel that they may not be able to cope with the arduous duties which an investigating police officer is required to discharge. There is also the danger of a male police officer completely abdicating his duties if a social worker is associated on an equal footing with him for investigation of an offence. If the investigation is successful and fruitful, then the male police officer will take all the credit for it, but if it fails, he will try to escape the liability for the failure by throwing the entire blame on the female associate. This being the position, it may not he practicable to confer on women social workers any specific legal status.1
