Penny Harrington is the first woman in America to break through the bullet-proof glass ceiling, and achieve the rank of Chief of a major metropolitan police force. She is regarded by some as a maverick who challenged the system, and by others as a celebrity. She faced discrimination and harassment, personal tragedies and triumphs as she battled a system that is still male-dominated. In this revealing story, Harrington describes with great candor her 23 years in law enforcement, up to and including her promotion to Chief of the Portland Police Bureau in Oregon, and why she left her hard-won position following a scandal and rumors that rocked Portland and were covered in newspapers around the country.
