Margaret York, an L.A.P.D. Model for ‘Cagney & Lacey,’ Dies at 80
(New York Times)She became the police force’s highest ranking woman after she and a detective partner inspired a TV series fighting crime in the streets and sexism in the ranks.

Margaret York, a homicide detective who helped inspire the 1980s Emmy-winning police drama “Cagney & Lacey,” and who rose to become the highest-ranking woman in the Los Angeles Police Department, died on Oct. 17 [2021] at a hospital in Los Angeles. She was 80.

The cause was a series of illnesses and finally multiple organ failure, said her husband, Judge Lance Ito, who gained national prominence presiding over the O.J. Simpson criminal trial and is now retired.

Ms. York met Judge Ito in late 1980, when he was a deputy district attorney in Los Angeles. Both had been called to the scene of a homicide at 3 in the morning. They met “over a dead body,” he said, recalling that he had been impressed with her but that she hadn’t paid him any attention.
