German Court: Breast Implants No Hindrance to Police Work

Wednesday, 23 November 2016 09:10 AM

BERLIN (AP) — A German court has ruled breast implants are no impediment to a woman becoming a police officer.

The ruling by the administrative court in the western city of Gelsenkirchen Wednesday came after a 32-year-old woman appealed a police doctor's assessment that her silicone implants were likely to rupture during physically demanding law-enforcement work.

But the court heard expert testimony there was less than a 20 percent risk of an implant ripping or other painful problems, the dpa news agency reported.

Nationwide police guidance says women with implants are not suited for police duty because of the injury risk, but other courts have also ruled otherwise.

A Berlin court in 2014, for example, rejected the argument that protective gear would put enough pressure on a recruit's chest to cause health problems.
