vatoca1016 :  What city do you live in (if you don’t mind sharing)? My Fiance is is a police sergeant and will be having our first baby. We live in a big city that is pretty active when it comes to crime. I don’t think I’ll feel any more concerned than I typically do when she is at work. I honestly think I’ll feel better since I know they’ll put her on desk work and she won’t be on the street.

Hmm, interesting, I guess I’m the outlier here, but if I was already in the job I wouldn’t think much of it. Other than that you probably couldn’t do the job effectively once you are further along, so modified duty would be a must.

I’d actually be more concerned about a job with chemical exposure, work with teratogens etc. than I would about the potential for violence or physical harm.
