Sally O’Neil
was an Irish American police officer who fought crime throughout New York City. She came from a family of police officers. At the time, female police officers were virtually unheard of, but that didn’t deter Sally, and her family supported her every step of the way. She graduated from police academy with distinction, earning high scores in sharpshooting and jiu-jitsu. Those skills served her fairly well on the field, as did her athleticism and perseverance.
