Woman cop gets big honor

A 46-YEAR-OLD policewoman who helped catch more than 1,000 suspects in three years has been named one of Shanghai's "Women Pacesetters."

Ding Rong has led her team to uncover 1,276 criminal cases around the Shanghai Railway Station and caught 1,323 suspects over the past three years.

She and her team also managed to keep more than 10 million railway passengers safe when they were delayed by the snowstorm last year.

In the month of the Olympic Games, Ding worked a staggering 360 hours of overtime.

However, Ding has only ever attended one parent-teacher meeting for her school-age daughter.

Her daughter made three wishes last year. She wanted her mother to help her do a piece of homework, to go shopping with her and to have a meal with her.

She has had only one wish granted: Ding said she took her daughter to the supermarket last year.

Ding has devoted her time to her career and maintaining a peaceful social environment.

"To protect the security of the public is the first duty of the police," Ding said when receiving the award. "It has nothing to do with gender."

Every year local women name 10 new Women Pacesetters to celebrate International Women's Day, which falls tomorrow.

The other pacesetters are: renowned actress Qin Yi, 88; Zhang Zhuangning, 53, a government official tackling complaints; Zhang Jianying, 48, a bridge designer; Yang Jueping, 34, an agriculturalist with the Songjiang District Agrotechnical Center; Xin Lili, 46, the Shanghai Ballet Troupe's art director; Jing'an District mediator Bai Wanqing, 60; Geng Wenxiu, 59, a psychology professor at East China Normal University; Jia Weiping, 53, director of the Shanghai Diabetes Research Institute; and Fan Rong, 36, a spaceship designer.
