Muslim woman receives other offers after quitting police academy
by Mark Ferenchik and Encarnacion Pyle
If the Columbus Police Division doesn't change its policy banning head scarves for female Muslim officers, Ismahan Isse might have a couple of options outside Ohio.
The Edmonton Police Service in Alberta, Canada, has reached out to Isse, the 29-year-old Somali-American who said she dropped out of the Columbus police academy this year because she was prohibited from wearing her head scarf, or hijab.
The Dispatch wrote about Isse last week, and Staff Sgt. Mark Farnell, an Edmonton police recruiter, read about her dilemma online.
