Brains, Brawn, and Bullets

On September 12, 1910 the city of Los Angeles appointed Alice Stebbins Wells the first woman police officer.

She later founded the International Association of Police Women and was the organization’s first president.

She became Sergeant in 1934. She retired in 1940, and died in 1957.

Forget Kate, Jaclyn, or Farrah. Alice was the original Charlie’s Angel.
