Film Premiere: The Rock

Join the Heinz History Center for the premiere of “The Rock,” a documentary about the life and legacy of Therese Rocco—one of America’s first female assistant police chiefs and the first in Pittsburgh.

Tracing Rocco’s beginnings in law enforcement at age 19 to her ascent to leadership in the Pittsburgh Police Department, “The Rock” explores how she broke the glass ceiling for women on the police force and navigated her way through discrimination in a male-dominated field.

Following the screening of the 50-minute documentary, Rocco will share intimate stories about her life, her work as an investigator, and how she continues to contribute to law enforcement and missing persons
