Female officers in high demand at St. Paul Police Department


January 30, 2017

Allison Rogers knew she wanted to be a police officer, but others had their concerns: Did she consider teaching instead? Had she seen the most recent news articles about officers who were killed in the line of duty?

So Rogers pursued a degree in corrections instead.

“I had a lot of people telling me I wouldn’t want to be in the profession,” said Rogers. “More out of fear than that it wasn’t a noble profession. I’m a pretty small girl … I’m 5-foot-1. With my boots, I’m 5-3.”
