Carolen Bailey was a pioneer for women in law enforcement across the country and especially in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where she spent her career proving a woman’s ability to perform the same duties as her male counterparts. Working her way up from the Juvenile Division, Bailey became the first female homicide investigator in Saint Paul in 1969. Collections Assistant Sondra Reierson shares the story of Mrs. Bailey and highlights some of the objects and papers she donated to the Minnesota Historical Society in 1991.
