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.

Congrats. I hope she enjoys every minute of her retirement.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
