HR Strange But True!
May 31, 2001

"Lighten up. It's just nudity," says Los Angeles police officer Ginger Harrison.

She isn't talking about nabbing flashers. Harrison recently became the first LAPD officer to pose nude for Playboy.

Whether that violates any department policies is under review by the city attorney's office. A New York City officer who preceded Harrison in the magazine was fired because she had appeared in her official uniform -- or at least parts of it.

Harrison, according to the Los Angeles Times, made sure she didn't repeat that mistake; she used police props provided by the magazine.

Harrison tells the Times that she wants to shake up the "male-dominated profession." She has a good rapport with her co-workers, she says, and is not afraid of any discomfort ensuing from the pictures.

"I deal with the locker room mentality every day," she says. "They're just a bunch of guys."
