GoWoman Loves: Kadra Mohamed, the first Hidjabi Police Officer in Minnesota

Kadra Mohamed is a 21 year old Somali-American police officer in St Paul, Minnesota. When she was sworn in last year, she became the first woman police officer to wear the hidjab on the job. This Muslimah is giving us all kinds of feels. You GoWoman!

Kudos to Minnesota for being one of the few states to allow female police officers to serve and protect while wearing a hidjab. Love it!



“St. Paul Community Officer Kadra Mohamed smiles after receiving her badge from St. Paul Police Chief Tom Smith on Saturday, March 1, 2014, during a ceremony for her and the East African Junior Police Academy at theWestern District Police Station in St. Paul. The police department introduced the hijab headscarf during the ceremony and Mohamed is the first officer in Minnesota to wear one.”
