There’s a growing number of women in law enforcement. In fact, at the moment, six of the 21 State Police officers stationed in the Derby barracks are women. Callie Field, who was originally from Maine, has been working there since 2002. Trooper Field was in law enforcement for seven years before that.
Being a woman in the force is no different from being a man, she said in a recent interview.
“You’re a trooper first and a woman second.”
