Details

While researching the history of APD, Yvonne Sandlin and Alicia Kassa discovered the fascinating history of the hiring of women for the Albuquerque Police Department. The Policewomen and female support staff of the Albuquerque Police Department have been a special breed, willing to put themselves in harm’s way, for the greater safety and security of the citizens of Albuquerque for the past 65 years.

Police Chief Paul Shaver first hired a female secretary in 1950 and it wasn’t until 1954 that he hired the first policewoman, Alice Darbee, to work with women and children. This publication shows the progression of hiring the first secretary and telephone operators to the promotion of the first female Deputy Chief of Police, Debbie Kuidis in April 1995.

About the Authors: Yvonne Chavez-Sandlin retired from the Albuquerque Police Department with 28 years of service as a Police Aide, Police Officer and Community Service Aide. She holds an associate degree in Police Science, a B.S. in Criminology and a M.A. in elementary education with additional graduate studies in Public Administration and Paralegal studies. She is married and has raised four boys while pursuing her career and educational endeavors.

Alicia Kassa is a native of Albuquerque who began her career with the City of Albuquerque in 1986 as a Correctional Officer. She transferred to the APD Forensic Photography Unit in 1996 and worked as a Photography Technician. She assisted in the production of the two previous APD books and retired from the Photo Lab in 2012. She has continued her love of the arts in photography and tin art. She volunteers for the APD Police Museum and is married to Joe Kassa, a retired Police Officer.
