Rio de Janeiro appoints first female police chief

Guardian report here.

A hard job - not least the gender stereotypes - which she embraces: "I will be a severe mother. I will punish when necessary and distribute hugs when they are deserved," Very Gene Hunt! But we are reassured, 'Rocha told the newspaper, which described her as a fan of Issey Miyake perfume, high heels and cooking.'

Guessing from this quote most of her officers are men, 'In an interview with O Globo she said she wanted her officers to be "polite, clean-shaven, good-humoured and kind".'
