    A court has nixed the minimum height requirement for police recruits in Germany’s most populous state, arguing that it is unfair to men.
    The case was brought by a female applicant who was rejected because she is 161.5 centimeters (5 feet 3 inches) tall.

    That’s 1.5 centimeters shorter than the minimum height required of women, which is 163 centimeters. Male police recruits in North Rhine-Westphalia state have to be at least 168 centimeters tall.

    Duesseldorf administrative court judges noted Tuesday that the state’s differing height requirements were introduced to correct the gender imbalance among applicants, which is skewed toward men

    One of my church friends is a female DPD officer. She's tiny, but she is tough. She's also a really good shot, so height is not all that important in her case.

    Exactly. Smartness and toughness are what makes a good officer. And they're taught at The Academy how to compensate for size. Plus the bulk of their careers morph into special investigative ones.
