Brian Latimer - January 2017
Los Angeles Police Department Commander, Anne Clark, is the first Hispanic woman to hold that job title in the force.
In August 2014, doctors diagnosed Clark with stage-1 Hodgkin's lymphoma. After four months of chemotherapy and follow-up radiation therapy, Clark has been in remission ever since – and is enjoying her new job title!
While going through her last rounds of treatment, Clark learned that after nearly 30 years with the LAPD, she had been promoted to Commander. "I got the phone call when I was off finishing my cancer treatment, which is even more remarkable," Clark said. "I came back to work in February 2015 into the rank of Commander with a whole new set of responsibilities." In Monday's Rose Bowl Parade, Commander Clark marched to draw attention to the disease and thank those who have helped her, including the LAPD.
