Heinz History Center to show Therese Rocco documentary
Therese Rocco will be celebrated as part of Women’s History Month with the premiere of “The Rock,” a documentary about her life and legacy.
Rocco was the first female assistant police chief in Pittsburgh and one of the first in the country.
The Senator John Heinz History Center will air the 50-minute film during a program from 7 to 9 p.m. March 7. The piece traces Rocco’s career in law enforcement and how she “broke the glass ceiling” in a male-dominated field.

Admission is free. Registration is encouraged.
Copies of Rocco’s book, “Therese Rocco: A Memoir” will be available for sale that evening.
