    longest tenured (and 1st female) NY Trooper retires

    Tpr Maureen Gordinier-Tuffey was one of the first four women to graduate the New York State Police Academy in 1973. She has retired as the most senior Trooper with 38 years of service!

    "Sworn in with Tuffey were Carol Johnston, who retired after 21 years at the rank of senior investigator; Carol Desell, who quit in January 1980, got married and moved to Florida; and Regina Robbins, who injured her shooting hand in a work-related incident and took a disability retirement after 13 years. Robbins was the top in the class at the Academy for academic excellence."

    Johnston was the first female to become an Investigator. Robbins was the first female to become a Sergeant. I believe there was also a fifth woman in that class, who did not complete the academy to become a Trooper.

    Thank you Trooper Gordinier-Tuffey.

    You know she has a hell of a book to write if she wants to. As the most senior Trooper she already has.
