An Evening with Therese Rocco: Pittsburgh's First Female Assistant Police Chief

Therese Rocco began her career in law enforcement as a 19-year old clerk in the missing persons unit of the Pittsburgh Police Department. Her career ended nearly fifty years later as an honored and acclaimed Assistant Police Chief, the fist woman in the Department to reach such a high ranking position. She was also the first woman in the country to reach this level. Therese is credited with establishing national protocols for investigating missing children cases that have saved lives of the untold number of children. To this day she is still very relevant to the police and continues to work with the FBI on an unsolved missing child case that has haunted her since the 1960s. She is credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women on the police force in Pittsburgh, navigating her way through discriminating times in a male-dominated field, helping female officers to succeed as a result of her journey. Join Therese to talk about her career, her memoir and her upcoming documentary.
