Tallahassee, FL – The Tallahassee Police Department hosted a celebration today and said goodbye to one of their own. Deputy Chief and Second in Command, Cheryl Stewart, had her retiring party today at TPD headquarters. Her success was also an accomplishment for the department as she was ranked the highest woman ever with TPD. Deputy Chief Stewart said she’s hopeful she has made an impact to other women pursuing careers in Law Enforcement. “You know women really can do anything that they really want to do. There’s really no limit so I would hope that I did play a small role in some peoples lives seeing that I did it and maybe that they could think that they could do it as well,” said Deputy Chief Stewart.
Deputy Chief Stewart’s served 26 years with TPD and her official last day is November 30, 2013. Deputy Chief Stewart said she plans to take some time to travel with her husband in retirement.
