TLC’s hit series returns for a fifth season to follow four highly respected female officers with the Cincinnati Police Department. Premiering Thursday, January 13 at 9 PM ET/PT, POLICE WOMEN OF CINCINNATI goes behind-the-scenes in Ohio’s third largest city to capture the dangerous reality of female law enforcement. From robberies to homicides, drug busts to domestic violence, these fearless women put their lives on the lines to keep the streets safe, all while balancing kids, significant others and life at home.
Meet the POLICE WOMEN OF CINCINNATI:
Sergeant Tia Pearson: A seasoned cop and Iraq War veteran, Tia has seen it all. Out on the streets, she’s as tough as they come and she’s not afraid to put criminals in their place. For her efforts and hard work, Tia was recently promoted to the rank of Sergeant, where she hopes to make an even greater impact. But when her shift ends, that stern façade melts away as she heads home to her wonderful fiancé, Adrian, who is also a cop.
Officer Colleen Deegan: An Iraq War Veteran, Colleen is one of the only women in the Cincinnati Police Department’s elite Central Vice Control Section, and spends her days working with a group of pro-active officers, targeting dangerous criminals with strategic undercover operations. Whether she’s tackling drug dealers, or going undercover as a prostitute, Colleen is always a force to be reckoned with. Her unrelenting attitude has earned her a reputation as one of the toughest officers in the city.
Officer Mandy Curfiss: A Cincinnati girl, born and raised and a former victims’ advocate in the Prosecutor’s office, Mandy was inspired to roll up her sleeves and join the fight on the city’s frontlines. Don’t let her blonde hair and disarming smile fool you. Mandy is aggressive, outspoken, and relentless when it comes to chasing down criminals. She’s determined to do whatever it takes to get her target and there’s nothing she loves more than foot chases and tackling bad guys, except her fiancé Jason, who is also a Cincinnati Police Officer.
Officer Rose Valentino: Working the midnight shift in Cincinnati’s notorious Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, Rose spends her nights hunting down some of America’s most dangerous offenders. She is a Cincinnati native who loves nothing more than putting bad guys behind bars and making the city safer for her young daughter, Lily, and fiancé Matt.
