Peggy York Dies, LAPD first female Deputy Chief

Peggy York, LAPD’s first female deputy chief, dies at age 80

During her tenure, York worked a variety of assignments as an investigator — most notably as one-half of an all-female homicide investigation team which inspired the 1980s television show "Cagney and Lacey"

The Los Angeles Police Women Police Officers and Associates President Commander Ruby Flores issued a statement about the inspirational example York set for countless women in the LAPD.

“(York) was not afraid to challenge conventional roles for women … The law enforcement community is poorer without her intellect, her wisdom and her generosity,” Flores said. “We lost a titan of a woman, but her legacy and contribution towards the advancement of women on the LAPD will live on.”
