First female MPD deputy director appointed

Today the Memphis Police Department appointed its first female Deputy Director of Police Services.

Deputy Director Janice C. Pilot has been with the department since 1979 where she's served as an Investigator, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Major, Inspector, and Deputy Chief of District two.

She's proud to be where she is today after coming from humble beginnings in Halls, Tennessee.

"I made history today and I'm very proud of that and I want to make sure I'm a mentor for others in the police department, not only the females but everybody on the police department," Pilot said.

Deputy Pilot is truly dedicated to her job. After the press conference instead of going out to a celebratory lunch, the new Deputy Director went back upstairs to get to work.
