There have been a number of fictitious crime-fighting hotties over the years Charlies Angels, Wonder Woman, Bionic Woman, Bat Girl, V.I.P. to name a few but there are real-world women who may not be superheroes, but certainly save lives, keep our streets safe, preserve the law, and uphold society. Lisa Lockwood is one such woman. How would you like to be pat down and handcuffed by a stunning buxom blonde with a striking figure worthy of a beauty pageant princess? Upon first looking at Lisa, you are drawn to her smile, high cheekbones, and shapely body. But believe it or not, she has been a SWAT member, went undercover as a narcotics detective, confronted the Mafia, and captured child rapists. She also joined the U.S. Air Force at only age 18, serving during Operation Desert Storm. Lisa shares the details of her rugged experiences in the male-dominant domains of the military and law enforcement in her new book, Undercover Angel: From Beauty Queen to Swat TeamĶA True Story. Lisa regales us with many colorful stories from seven years in the police department of a Chicago suburb, including what it was like to: Ģ Be the first woman on the departments ultra-macho SWAT. Ģ Go undercover to catch pedophiliacs Ģ Infiltrated drug rings. Ģ Pose as a prostitute, Hooters waitress, and hot girlfriend of a thug. Ģ Overcome the sexist Ol Boys Club fraternity of the police community to win their respect and praise. Ģ Become a narcotics detective, earn Officer of the Year, and then walk away from it all to pursue a new marriage and career as a speaker and life coach. The heart of the book is formed by accounts of her most challenging and dangerous undercover assignmentsand the lessons she gleaned from them. Not all was easy for Lisa, who traded in her high heels and tiara for combat boots and an M-16 rifle. Undercover Angel inspiringly exemplifies how: You can pursue your career dream even if others naysay your efforts. One can overcome numerous challenges to succeed. Despite the limits of your childhood, you can rise above them to win. You can adapt to any situation and make it work for you. Undercover Angel also serves as a diary of her social life, from a bad first marriage to a verbally abusive drunk, through her various relationships and dates, until she finally meets Mr. Right who encourages her success and supports her decision to retire from law enforcement. Undercover Angel shares Lisas story of overcoming a welfare dependent home life, where three of her siblings became unwed teen moms, and dropped out of high school, and her dad doled out weekly beatings without provocation. Every step of the way Lisa had to fight to prove herself, whether at home, while competing on the beauty pageant runway, in her relationships, during her Air Force days, or through her police training, detective and SWAT career. I wrote my story to inspire others, says Lisa, by showing them a unique transformation: from a welfare kid into a beauty pageant contestant, a soldier to victim of domestic violence, SWAT cop to man-eater, and finally back into the skin in which I was meant to live: A loving, adventurous, nurturing, driven and passionate ladyĶwho just happens to know how to storm a drug house at a moments notice.
