Woman, 32, blocked from joining police because of fake boobs wins six-year court battle

A woman who was told she could not be a police officer because she had fake breasts has won a six-year court battle and has finally been given the right to join

A woman who was told she could not be a police officer because she had fake breasts has won a six-year court battle and has finally been given the right to join.

The 32-year-old who is only known by her first name, Chantal, had initially applied to join the police in the German capital, Berlin, in 2012.

But despite passing all the tests, she was rejected for declaring she had had a boob job two years earlier.

According to police regulations, officers are not allowed breast implants because of the associated health risks and the possibility of them ripping during service.

Refusing to give up her dream of being a cop, Chantal took the case to court in Gelsenkirchen, in western Germany.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘I applied to join the Berlin police in 2012 and despite passing all the tests I was rejected.

‘I told them I’d had implants in 2012 and was turned down for that reason.  But you know me: I’m not letting that go. 

‘My lawyer and I went to court to prove to the Berlin authorities that I was fit for service even with my boobs.’

After reading a report from the University of Bonn which showed that there was no substantial risk to the woman’s health, the judge ordered the police to review their regulations.

Chantal said: ‘I was examined and completely scanned by all the best doctors – they even found a tumour. 

‘After all the emotional stress, the tears, and so many appointments, the struggle was worth it.

“Sound of the Police” is my song now too.’  

Chantal’s lawyer, Sven Ollmann, said the implants were the newer, upmarket kind adding: ‘Even if they were to rip, nothing would happen.’

Speaking after the verdict, a delighted Chantal said: ‘I did it for me, but for other women as well. Please always fight for what is important to you.’
