Tuskowski, a former Connecticut State Trooper, entered the Connecticut State Police Academy as one of only 10 females, among 120 recruits in 1983. Upon graduation in May of 1983, she became one of 20 uniformed female Troopers among the Department's 1,000 Troopers in the state.
"During my 20 years of experience, I saw more and more females start entering security-related careers that were stereotypically male," said Tuskowski. "Knowing that the amount of women in both the state police and in private security companies, like SSC, has almost quadrupled since I started makes me incredibly proud."
At the state police, Tuskowski, worked as a Community Resource Officer, and worked in the Special Licensing and Firearms Unit. She has been employed at SSC since 2003.
