What is it about a woman with a badge? It just somehow appeals to you, a woman with authority but still beauty, who can look amazingly beautiful and yet be able to take down a perp twice her size. She’s tough and yet soft enough to help others, working everything from short skirts to a pant suit in great style and sparking police shows majorly. While men dominated cop shows for years, women have finally gotten their due in the last several decades, including being the true headliners and that mix of smarts and sex appeal have led to some great ladies on screen.

This is just for cops, don’t expect lawyers or medical examiners (who deserve separate lists of their own) and only the pros, no private eyes like Charlie’s Angels. Also, while there are a few federal agents, no spies (again, that’s another list) as this is just for the ladies in uniform or plainclothes who look great with their work. Here are the 30 hottest female cops television has given us, from patrolwoman to detective to agent and proof of how we love a lady with a badge.

1 Olivia Benson - Law & Order SVU

via huffingtonpost.com

The heart and soul of L&O SVU since it began, Mariska Hargitay has won an Emmy for her performance as her character has endured a lot of ups and downs. The product of rape herself, Olivia handled growing up with an alcoholic mother and seeking the justice she was denied. Smart and tough, she’s handled everything from going undercover in a prison to being held hostage by a psychopath and endured, intense on the job but always with heart to help others. She’s shown off her sexuality a bit but isn’t bound to being a pretty face but determined to show her mind and drive behind it. It’s paid off as she’s now the head of the SVU unit, raising an adopted son and yet still incredibly gorgeous to watch as a woman ready to kick the ass of anyone in her way but protect the innocents no matter what.
