Women join ranks of police reserves in New York City, during World War I.

Closeup of women in the New York City Police reserve, during World War 1. They stand outside the 23rd Police Precinct ("Tenderloin") Station House on West 30th Street, Manhattan, New York City. Their uniforms include round-brimmed hats and overcoats, and they have round badges topped with eagles, pinned to their coats. Next, about 15 are seen, walking two abreast. All wear white gloves and badges, but otherwise, their uniforms are not identical. One supervisor woman walks beside the group, wearing a slightly different badge. Walking casually, a short distance behind the group is a woman (probably Mary Noonan) in the uniform of a captain (with "railroad tracks" insignia on her collar). Scene shifts to a street filled with a traffic mix of horse-drawn and motor vehicles, all staying fairly clear of trolley tracks visible in the center of the road. A police reserve woman stands in the center of the street, directing traffic. Next, a large group of school children is seen standing on a street corner, accompanied by a woman police officer. They begin to cross the street under the watchful eye of another woman reserve police officer, directing traffic in the street. Some adults cross behind the children. (Note: On May 9, 1918, the New York City Police Department announced formation of a new Police Reserve, that would include a women's contingent. This was the idea of Special Deputy Commissioner Rodman Wanamaker, who reasoned, since New York women had received the vote, on November 6th 1917, they should have a role in enforcing the laws. Over 3,000 women were recruited. Their Captain was Mary Noonan. Their duties did not involve direct dealings with criminals. According to the New York Times of May 10, 1918, "If need arose for use of the nightstick or other instrument for curbing crime,the work would be referred to the men members of the force.")
