Celebrating 100 Years of Women Sworn to Protect and Serve in the LAPD

A big congratulations is in order for the Los Angeles Police Department, which hosted a celebration today commemorating the 100-year Anniversary of the department's first female officer. Women in the department have come a long way since then and as Chief Beck said, they have advanced in every detail in the department and bring a unique perspective to their work. Congratulations to all the women in the LAPD and a special congrats to our own Capt. Anita Ortega, commanding officer at Hollenbeck.
