A Green Beret returns home from the Vietnam war to find that a gang of murderous bikers has killed his fiancee. He calls on several of his Green Beret buddies to come and help him take revenge on the gang.
What we have here is a large organized crime wave obviously committed by a well-organized gang of women.
Like a female mafia?
It sure looks that way. And pardon my pun, but our male undercover agents haven't been able to penetrate the gang.
So you need a woman - pardon my pun - to go undercover.
Or under the covers!

Could have been called Dirty Henrietta...seriously disappointing drive-in flick
I found Policewomen really disappointing; although I must admit that I went into it with the wrong expectations. I was hoping for a drive-in feature along the same lines as women in prison flicks such as Caged Heat or The Big Bird Cage; and after the opening scene, which features a prison break, it looked as though I was going to get my wish. However, from there Policewoman quickly descends into boredom and ends up turning into a low-rent female lead version of Dirty Harry; and I was none too impressed. The plot focuses on Lacy Bond (who, according to the poster, came before James Bond; even though this film was released twelve years after James' film debut). Lacy is bored with her job of guarding female prisoners; but she gets break after thwarting the prison escape that takes place during the best part of the movie single handed. She gets some training and then the top brass decide to give her an assignment that involves infiltrating an all-female gang of drug smugglers.
The main problem with this film is that the plot isn't very interesting, and there is little in the way of distractions. There are plenty of films like this that aren't particularly strong in the plot department; but work anyway thanks to interesting characters and wacky situations; but despite featuring an old woman with a strapping young husband; this film is seriously lacking in those areas, which makes viewing it very tedious. There's also nothing in the way of sleaze, which is unforgivable as far as I'm concerned since that's the only reason I was watching the film. The lead role is taken by Sondra Currie; and she's not very good, both in terms of how she looks and her performance. I really lost interest in the film after about half an hour and director Lee Frost didn't seem interested in trying to regain it. The grand finale is not too bad, and better than anything featured in the middle part of the film; but even so, this really is disappointing stuff and I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to find a copy.
