Job Description

We are searching for a talented individual to voice an excerpt from Marie Connolly Owen's personal account of her experience as a police sergeant enforcing child labor laws in 1901. This excerpt will be one of the few historical accounts included with many current and recently retired police officers sharing their experiences on the job. The actor must be able to perform as if Owen is recounting her story in a casual conversation, like she is being interviewed in real time rather than reading from a diary.

Marie Connelly Owens (1853–1927) is believed to have been the first female police officer in the U.S. and the first female police officer in the Chicago Police Department, in 1891, retiring in 1923. Holding the rank of Sergeant, Owens enforced child labor and welfare laws.
