For fun, I just googled leomemorial and got her public myspace page! Last updated 1984, her not the myspace page. Someone is a little jealous.
I wonder was that the last time for something else as well???

Sounds like Tanglefoot has a tab going with the local cosmetic surgeon. LMAO

I just wanted everyone to know that my name is Renee Lee Greco and I run the National Police Memorial website. I am not a cop but I tend to blog ALL DAY on EVERY website about cops!! I was/am friends with Chris who drove a car for the camera crew on Female Forces. He unfortunately does not have a full time job so he has to do things like this -- and unfortunately he will probably never get another gig like this due to him lying about things and me blogging about it without knowing the truth. Good Luck!

Chris!!!!!!!!! Aaaha, that makes sense now.
Oh the stories I could tell about Chris. Poor guy couldn't get action anywhere, he even hit on the girls behind the counter at Panara bread without success. I thought one of the girls was going to throw a bagel at him. I am glad you are just friends with him because it wouldn't be a good thing to be his girlfriend or wife.

Thanks for having the courage to tell us who you are and where you got your scoop from leomemorial. I agree with you, I doubt he will ever get another gig like this again.

I'm a female PO and I love the show, I like that Bestsy, there is some crazy things on that show. But I know some is not for real.

Also, who was the Officer that was the passenger in the DUI stop when the two were riding together? I want to see more of her, she was funny.

You all were making me think of the snow and ice tonight. Boooo.

Amen, Uh, you're a female Policewoman? Geesh you had to go and spoil things, why would a woman want to be a policeman for?

Anyway; that's a 'rhetorical' question.

Tanglefoot, a spoil? You're making me sad.
I guess I could give you a long winded response but what it basically boils down to is I wanted to go back to my old neighborhood where I grew up and somehow make a difference there.

I was raised by my grandmother, at times she felt like a prisoner in her own neighborhood. As a kid I remember this, and I wanted to try to change that.

I thought this show was supposed to be about police women, but there is a man on the show all the time. I think there must have been some confusion because his name is Tracy.

I have been noticing more and more attractive police officers in Naperville in the last couple years. If I'm gonna get pulled over, I'm getting the ticket anyway so it might as well be an attractive female taking my money.
PS I've lived in Naperville 25+ years and for all the fun people make of the Police here, I am convinced they do a good job...too good with traffic for my taste.

The ego of these women is unbelievable.

Yeah right. Let me go crawl in my scardy cat hole. And by the way, somebody enlighten me as to WHEN the last time a Naperville PO had to use deadly force?

WOW, this show is truly HORRIBLE! I work on a Department "next door" and this just further proves what other Cops in the area already know and feel, and that is 99% of the time, NOTHING goes on in Naperville. And to think the footage that aired was APPROVED by Naperville before it could be put on. The tactics used were a joke, the calls they went on were a joke, their little "banter" back and forth was a joke, just the whole thing was brutal. As a Police Officer I am actually EMBARASSED for THEM! For the viewer that knows nothing about Policing I'm sure it was painful to watch, as a person that works in the same profession to watch this, wow, this "show" should have never seen the light of day. Megan, I have to agree with your comments. I bet ALOT of those Officers are having regrets ever allowing themselves to be filmed.

I'm from out of state and I like the show. I could tell from the first half hour of the first show that it wasn't a serious documentary about the nations toughest female cops. The name of the program isn't "Female Forces: Los Angeles" What do you guys expect. These ladies are small town cops and they're expected to talk and interact when the cameras are rolling. I think they all come off as very likeable and serious about their jobs. I also don't think they made Naperville look bad at all. In fact I think they actually made it look like a decent little town. If anybody is to blame for your disappointment it should be the network that promoted it.
