The film was written and directed by Lee Frost, and stars Sondra Currie (who would later be better known to recent audiences for her role in the Golden Globe-winning comedy The Hangover), Tony Young, and Phil Hoover.
Despite the fact that the story actually features only one female police officer, the film's title was pluralized and formed into one word because the title Police Woman was already in use by an NBC TV series whose pilot was scheduled to premiere one month after this film's release.

When A.J. and his men liberate the women from Bobby's custody, tensions mount to an all-out confrontation for control of the island.
Terminal Island is a 1973 American film directed by Stephanie Rothman. It features an early screen performance by Tom Selleck. Although an exploitation film, it has been the treatment of much serious discussion by critics and academics over the years.
Rothman later said that that she was asked to have a rape scene in the film but could not bring herself to shoot it. "I would not want to be responsible in any way for showing how it could be done," said Rothman.
The film was originally more violent but scenes had to be cut out. Rothman was uncomfortable with the violence that she did show. "I was unhappy with the movie and still continue to feel so," she said in 1981.
