The International Association of Chiefs of Police has just this year published a model law enforcement pregnancy policy.

Both of these techniques have been classified as seizures under the fourth amendment to the United States Constitution. Female officers often have the ability to de-escalate potentially violent or aggressive situations through their presence and use of interpersonal skills, reducing the need to resort to physical confrontation.
