Retired policewoman Irene Devine was an officer in Lancashire in the early 70s.She remembers bitter resistance to an equal joint force - and not just from men. 'In Lancashire, women were actually allowed out on patrol,' says Devine, national co-ordinator of the British Association of Women in Policing (BAWP). 'But elsewhere, they worked with women and children, or did nothing but switchboard and administration.Deep down they might not have agreed with the situation, but to have said so was to be dead in the water.I can't remember a single policewoman saying she supported integration back in 1975.'
