    The Chinese city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province has commissioned eight policewomen to wear rollerblades to patrol the popular Tianfu Square. Surprising? Yes. But not uncommon, as there are already rollerblading police in Paris. What's shocking is that when the women aren't in skates, they're wearing three-inch high heels. Rena Karefa-Johnson has more.

I'd probably try and get friendly with a cop wearing heels than want to argue with one wearing jackboots! The heeled/jackbooted ones are still in charge anyway. Might be hard to work out what I say but think about it on a basic level to begin with.If you are with the police, which one do you prefer? If not, Which one do you prefer? Your answer alone will help you decide!

Physically fit females in smart uniforms, minimal makeup and high heels are a sad sad example of a police force? Hah! You could imagine wearing high heels only if you were 160 cm in height and 46 Kg's. This is a police force that projects confidence during patrols and gets attention in return. Thumbs UP!

this is so sexist! heels are soo pretty i love them but that's fashion i can understand if it was for some kind of photo-shoot or a charity police walk-a-thon or even a party where u dress in uniform something like that or even for an office but still not even i think being forced to wear heels is completely sexist and for a policewoman dangerous this is just beyond ridiculous

There is a level of authority that is shown when a woman wears a good heel. Personally I think it should be a choice of what height the heel is. On the other hand, how is she supposed to keep up with the offender when she's in heels? So yes, the authority point works to a certain extent, but they're giving up practicality.

It seems you've never been to the US or China. I've traveled extensively for work and even lived in China for a few years, I can tell you that I feel safer in Shanghai then I do in New York. Shaighai doesn't have an unconstitutional 'stop and frisk' policy, and their cops do not carry tasers and pepper sprays (and usually not even guns) or treat the population like the 'enemy.' The moment you get off a plane in the US and get greeted by the TSA, you know you are in a police state....

Actually when i was living China they really afraid from their police.It's like if u hit policeman .. it means you're hitting Chinese government or ideal or whatever.So their police are very very confident.Also when it comes to police women ..if you're talking about detectives ..who cares what they wear coz they even don't wear uniforms.If they're patrolwomen wearing uniform then their main responsibility is preventing crimes by patrolling in public.So who cares high heels again.

A Chengdu woman in heels beat me in ping-pong... I've seen hundreds of Chengdu women climbing steep mountains in heels on holidays. Maybe it reflects a greater misogynist culture--I could believe it. But for whatever reason, Chinese women (and I've lived in Chengdu in particular) love high-heels.

hey, now. I agree that their delivery wasn't all that great in many parts but they did bring up many parts. I think making female police officers wear heels does force them to prioritize their conforming to the social gender identities before their actual occupation, which is a police. Many officers may not feel comfortable with this sort of new exposure. Police are meant to be seen as figures of authority, not figures of sexuality.

rollerblades are pretty practical for flat urban territory, you barely break a sweat at running speeds, but scooters-like devices are probably better since you can quickly transition to running on foot

Actually, in China, there are strict laws governing when a police officer can carry firearms. Most 'street beat' and 'traffic' cops cannot carry firearms when executing those duties. So no, cops can't just 'gun down' a suspect in China. Also, as been mentioned before by people who lived/traveled/worked in Chengdu, this 'story' is completely bogus.

I fail to see the point of this... The shoes had English logo on it, hence it wasn't designed by the Chinese. And sexism? Well... you can really only start to call that sexism if male policemen are able to wear heels without getting laughed to death. My conclusion: video = fail, period

@SalafeeSpot When the clothing inhibits your ability to preform the task at hand, yes. It's a uniform for a reason, your clothing shouldn't keep you from doing your job. Ask yourself this, if you're getting stabbed by some drugged up phyco are you going to feel safe when some woman in three inch heels comes clopping down the ally, barely able to run, let alone save you? Yeah? Add a pencil skirt to that that cuts her stride in half. Ok, have fun with that.

Don't you know that as part of the strenuous training programs they go through, Chinese women officers are trained to turn most props into weapons? We throw shoes like ninja stars. They are deadly even without any shoes. :P And btw, a random fact: There are more females in the Chinese army than the whole population of the US.

How often do female police ever catch a fleeing suspect? Especially if the suspect is male. They might as well wear heals and call for back up because that's what they would've done anyway.

A harsh bias review on a barely researched  "story". Now, I'm all for equality, but I'm also for news that doesn't feel so much like thinly veiled "opinion propaganda".  How did this new female police program start? What are the operating regulations of the clothing standards for the female police women? How many hours are these police officers required to walk while patrolling? Is this a pilot program? (because if it is, then it's still going to have a lot of changes before the final sign off. After all when females first started in the American military, they too were required to wear heels and skirts, whilst only being in careers that were face value or paper work only.)  I think it's good to see that China is starting to embrace having a female work force within the area of law enforcement. As time goes on the rules will change to something more effective and common sense, whilst less focused upon  gender and aesthetics alone.  Instead of reporting with so little information and so much...*opinion*, it would be good of those at Buzz:60 to try and add more to the story, and stop trying so hard to connect with an audience. We come for the report, not the bad acting and horrible jokes. Don't be the tryhard. Sure they're interesting for a short while, but then they get annoying very quickly.  This video alone feels more like an alienation of the viewer, than trying to share knowledge in an entertaining way.  Too much "sass." Not enough smart. Too much arrogance. I don't even want to know what you mean by "authentic sense of humor"  The quirk is less eccentric fun, and more like someone singing off key. Loudly. Guys, stop trying so hard. Let your writers make a basic script and allow your video cast to improv. with the only mandate of "make sure to tell all the facts." People don't want news that's been glossed over with opinion and too little information. We see that everywhere on the internet, and always on the main news stations.

Chengdu Tianfu Software Park, or as you label it 'Chengdu Square', is a very vibrant and rapidly growing high-end industrial district. It's not somewhere you'll be chasing down muggers, quite likely. Additionally, as you didn't point out implicitly, it's only eight women. I would imagine this is more of a state-sponsored relations and protection service for the successful of this technology park: consequently, you appear to be jealous and petty in your assessment of this aesthetic choice.

Heels for women police officers are appropriate at banquettes... I suppose.... but not chasing down criminals! It would make as much sense to do this as it would to make female firefighter wear heels during vehicle extrication. Not practical for anyone!

Heels are, as Rena mentions, impractical. They're hard on the feet and bad for posture. In addition, an officer will be unable to chase a suspect in heels. They are for "show" only and serve no other function (unless of course, you count stomping the toes of an attacker). It is counter-intuitive. Rollerblades offer mobility, but heels take it away. How about, add rollerblades, and also good boots/shoes, and teach everyone parkour. THEN you'd have a policing force to reckon with!

I've been to Chengdu, and the police are looked up on as people who help the population, not as folks that bust criminals and do sober faced observation of the public. I can see why Americans would find this all amusing (roller blades) but it seems to me that the police in Chengdu are trying innovative ways to deliver services to the public. The high heels are a bit much, though....

She made valid points. Imagine a police officer trying to chase down a criminal wearing those. Completely impractical. It turns every female officer into a symbolic gesture rather than an actual useful tool to help society. "Disgusting" is a strong word, but this woman's point is no less valid after all of the knee-jerk comments on here. People need to think before they start crying foul.
