Nov. 7, 1919, Policewomen
Nov. 7, 1919: London retains 100 of the women police officers who were put into service during World War I. Part of the force was disbanded after the war, but 100 policewomen were retained to keep order out of fears of "an orgy of dissipation" among ex-soldiers in the "night life sections." The policewomen  are particularly on the lookout for young women who might be attracted to such places and get in trouble.
