It was 20 years ago yesterday, Mobile police corporal Owen McClinton was hit and killed in the line of duty.

He was on his department motorcycle when he was run over on Government Street, re-enforcing just how dangerous that job is.

Every year at this time, Mobile's motorcycle cops fine-tune their skills, getting ready for parade season in the port city.

It is a special group made up primarily of men. But in tonight's Salute to First Responders, we introduce you to the lone woman who is patrolling our streets on two wheels.
