I came across this article about Fanchon Blake who passed away April 28th. The author, David Colker, wrote:
“Blake, 93, whose class-action lawsuit targeting the LAPD resulted in one of the most sweeping changes in the department’s history, died Tuesday at a group home in Bend, Ore.”
Read how Mr. Colker tells Ms. Blake’s story of taking on LAPD during a time when women police officers and detectives didn’t advance in the ranks very far in the Department. You can read the article here.
