Sgt. Stephanie Murphy used to be a tow lift driver at a factory but then applied to the Cleveland Police Department and has been on the force for 18 years.
During that time she worked patrol and in the Vice unit but a year and a half ago she was promoted and eventually moved to traffic. What she didn’t expect was to become the very first female supervisor of the 25 member motorcycle unit.
Sgt. Murphy is no stranger to challenge. She’s a certified fitness coach, personal trainer and Yoga instructor during her free time. She’s also grandmother to two boys.
When she took over the Motorcycle unit this summer riding police bikes wasn’t a job requirement. But Sgt. Murphy knew in order to lead, she had to be part of the pack. So she signed herself up for the two week grueling training course.
