Most of the guys that I know that are police, prison guards, or firefighters will acknowledge that women don't excel in those positions. Upper body strength isn't needed on a daily basis, but when it is needed, it is absolutely needed. There is no good substitute for upper body strength when you have to carry someone or when having to lay hands on a struggling, belligerent person.
