Female Sgt. blazes trail for up-and-coming cops

"She definitely has respect of her peers, of her subordinates, and her superiors"

BILLINGS, Mont. — Sergeant Ronda Fox is among the nearly 150 officers of the Billings Police Department committed to protecting their community and preventing crime. Fox is the only woman serving as a sergeant, but there's a total of 14 female officers in the department. A number that makes up 10-percent of the BPD workforce.

Sgt. Fox has been a part of the Billings Police Department since 2000. She has patrolled the streets, served as a training officer and worked in detectives, often going undercover. Then, four years ago she was promoted to sergeant and became the first and only female commander for the BPD.

"Sgt. Fox is the epitome of what hard work and dedication is regardless of whether you're a male or female officer," said Billings Police Chief Rich St. John. "She has paid her dues working the patrol division, all shifts, and probably got most of her street experience when she was working in an undercover capacity."
