Female Motor Officers  

September 26, 2012
Female motor officers, like me, are distinguished as the top 0.2% (roughly) of law enforcement. What it took to get there wasn't an average walk in the park, but there is no other specialized unit I would rather be a part of.

Are Physical Tests Fair to Females?  

July 13, 2012
There's a pattern across police departments in this country where the physical ability hiring standard is higher than the physical ability post-hiring standard.

How To Stay Safe During a John Sting  

July 2, 2012
The male and female officers who take on the undercover assignment as a prostitute often struggle with how far to carry the "walk and talk" to make a good case. The balance is no different in vice operations than when making a good drug arrest. The undercover (UC) officer must blend into the crowd, as well as lead the conversation in a safe and lawful way.

How to Plan a 'John' Sting  

April 18, 2012
Attacking prostitution in a certain neighborhood or industrial strip usually involves undercover (UC) officers attempting to solicit street-walkers and placing them in steel bracelets. However, a "john" sting can be another effective way to combat the problem.

Competency Trumps Gender  

March 14, 2012
It wasn't until I became the first female to reach the rank of lieutenant and subsequently commander in my organization that gender became the focus. The media and the public were trying to shine a light on what I had spent so many years successfully deflecting and it was making me extremely uncomfortable.
