Openly gay female appointed new Tampa police chief
A Tampa first: Mayor names woman as police chief

By Rebecca Catalanello, Times Staff Writer
In Print: Thursday, September 17, 2009

AMPA Jane Castor was a 24-year-old police recruit when she got her first law enforcement honor.

Her peers elected her president of their police academy class, making her the first woman at the Tampa Police Department to achieve the title.

On Wednesday, 25 years after graduating first in her class and rising from patrol to administration, Castor received the department's highest honor:

Chief.

She is the first woman in Tampa's history to hold that title.

Mayor Pam Iorio made the announcement during a morning news conference, praising retiring Chief Stephen Hogue for leaving a legacy of leadership that allowed her to pick his successor without moving from the 10th floor of police headquarters.

1. The story in my local yokel bird cage liner merely alluded to
her assignment as a "liaison to the gay/lesbian community".

Congratulations to both Ms. Castro and the Mayor.
