Officer Cummings is the first female officer since the department’s inception 125 years ago.

“I think just growing up in Ridley Township, there was no female cops at all. I went to school for criminal justice and kinda just went that way. I loved being a cop,” Cummings said.

Officer Cummings says her great-grandfather was the mayor of Prospect Park, which drew her to be an officer there.
