Fearless Female Police Officers: Defeated the Thief with her bare Hands while pregnant!

Female Police Officers 2When she was four months pregnant, Azra Kurić, a graduate in criminology, ran after a man who stole cellphones from one shop in Sarajevo. The thief was holding a screwdriver, but she still managed to defeat him. Under the command of Indira Buljubašić who leads the duty team in the Operational Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Sarajevo Canton, 17 people are working hard. Sanela Hasanbegović, a junior inspector, spend eight years working on domestic violence cases.

Although they may not seem like that on the first glance, they are fearless. The very fact that they are women in what many people call a “men’s profession” actually strengthens them additionally and forces them to endure in what they are doing and thus demonstrate how much they are worth. They are the inspectors of the police of Sarajevo, they love the job they are doing and they cannot imagine themselves anywhere else.

Azra Kurić, a graduate in criminology, is a senior police officer currently working at the police station Centar. She always wanted to be a police officer and she never thought about doing anything else in her life. Since she knew what she wants, she enrolled in the studies of criminology and got a job in the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Sarajevo Canton after graduating in 2007.

As she said, she did everything, from the working in the community to the position of the assistant manager of shifts, carefully patrolling…

“I think that every police officer must take the road I did in order to do their job in the best possible way. Each experience you gain in this job is priceless,” said Azra, adding that she is not bothered with being at the disposal for the citizens 24 hours per day. The family certainly feels the consequences of that, but luckily her husband has a similar profession so the understanding does not lack.

How brave and committed Azra is to what she is doing is evidences by one of the anecdotes she gladly remembers. She was working the night shift with a colleague when they got a call about a break-in in progress at a mobile shop in the Papagajka building. She and her colleague were downtown at the moment and, not knowing how, they arrived at the crime scene in a minute. They spotted the thief right away, holding a bag full of cellphones in his hands. Although she was four months pregnant at the time, Azra ran after the thief, not carrying a gun under her belt.

“I was just thinking about how to catch him. I did not think about my condition for a single moment and I ran as fast as I could. I even outran my colleague and we defeated the thief soon. I started to vomit due to all the adrenaline and pregnancy,” Azra recalls. The colleague was worried about her because the thief had a screwdriver in his hand and he could have hurt her.

“You simply have a goal, the adrenaline works, and you just want to do things right without thinking about yourself or anything else,” Azra said.
