SOUTHERN WOMEN FIGHT CRIME IN THE NEW SEASON OF POLICE WOMEN OF DALLAS
(Los Angeles, CA) - TLC moves to the Big D, showcasing southern grace and Texas swagger in the
latest installment of the hit franchise POLICE WOMEN OF DALLAS. Premiering Thursday,
October 28 at 9 PM ET/PT, this eight-part series follows five highly skilled female officers with the
Dallas Police Department (DPD) determined to make their city a safer place.
Dallas, one of the nation's biggest metropolitan areas, is known for its relaxed lifestyle, art, cuisine
and football. But behind the cowboy boots and Tex-Mex food, like all cites, Dallas struggles with a
wide array of crimes. From robberies to homicides, gang violence to domestic violence, the POLICE
WOMEN OF DALLAS must work one of the grittiest beats in the state of Texas.
These local ladies maintain their southern charm but work diligently to keep their streets safe. Relying
on strength and dedication, these officers make it their everyday mission to protect and to serve their
city. The POLICE WOMEN OF DALLAS also manage to perform a successful balancing act,
making time for friends and family while furthering their careers. It's all in a day's work for these
dynamic women experiencing the rewards and facing the challenges of law enforcement.
Meet the POLICE WOMEN OF DALLAS:
Sergeant Tracy Jones: Though this veteran cop has seen it all after fifteen years on the job, she
remains cool, confident and always in control. On the streets, Tracy's as tough as they come, but
when her shift ends, the stern fa�ade melts away as she heads home to her teenage daughter, Kaylon.
Out of uniform, Tracy's a loving single mother, who isn't afraid to laugh, cry or show her tender side.
Officers Mia Shagena and Sara Ramsey: Despite their youth and outgoing personalities, these
young partners have honed their street smarts. Whether they're busting drug dealers or chasing down
bad guys, these two can definitely hold their own. Off duty, Sara is a loving fianc�e engaged to
another officer and Mia is a happy, single, twenty-something living in the big city.
Officer Beth Burnside: A member of DPD's elite Crime Response Team, Beth spends her
days working with a group of pro-active officers, targeting high crime areas. She's a born and
raised Texas girl who loves nothing more than putting bad guys behind bars. Beth's
unrelenting determination even earned her "Rookie of the Year" honors when she was just out
of the academy. At home, Beth and her officer husband Dion, enjoy a rich family life with
their two young children - Kara and Jackson.
Senior Corporal Melissa Person: A Dallas native and a street-tested nine-year veteran of the
DPD, Melissa works the challenging South Central Division and wouldn't have it any other
way. She's strong-willed, outspoken and relentless when it comes to chasing down criminals.
On the job, Melissa's determined to use all the tools available to her to catch criminals. Off the
job, Melissa's a single mom raising three kids - Turner, Katherine and her youngest, Alistair.
