MEET the drop-dead gorgeous cop who spends her off-duty days filming beauty tutorials and vlogging.
This glamorous mum-of-two posts YouTube make-up videos and tutorials under the alias The Beauty Cop advocating herself as a role model to other women and girls.
Leslie Ann (37) from Pennsylvania, USA, has worked as a Police Officer for ten years and began beauty vlogging about two years ago.
“My goal is to be a role model and motivate other girls to just be themselves,” said Leslie Ann.
“If you want to pursue a male dominated career, you can still be girly and do the job well.
“It is the only profession I wanted to pursue since I was little and I feel comfortable and confident within the police department.”
Leslie Ann is passionate about both her work in the field and her beauty tutorials, creating The Beauty Cop as a brand that brings something unique to the beauty vlogging industry.
“I get very positive feedback. I love when I get a message from a female stating that she is thinking about becoming a police officer,” she explained.
“Or that after finding my YouTube channel or Instagram they are now inspired to pursue their dream of becoming a female police officer.”
For women wanting to become a police officer, Leslie Ann urges them to pursue their passion.
“I would tell them that if they feel it in their heart and gut, then go for it!” she said.
“Be prepared that there will be obstacles and people that want to see a female cop fail, but have confidence in yourself and that will shine through and gain the respect that you deserve.”
Leslie Ann has always been interested in beauty but began focussing on this after she turned thirty-years-old.
“I am very proud to be a female police officer and who I am,” she added.
“I want girls, especially my daughters, to not feel like they have to choose to be a certain type of girl. It shouldn’t matter what career they want to pursue.
“I love my job as a police officer but I also love being a YouTube beauty blogger.”
