On April 9th, 1973, the House Select Committee on Crime, chaired by Congressman Claude Pepper, began a series of hearings on street crime and the street level response. In its first day of hearings, the Committee heard testimony from officials from the New York City police department, including Lieutenant Julia Tucker, who has a seven-woman Rape Investigation and Analysis Section, which was formed because the department felt that victims of rape would be more willing to report the crime to other women rather than to male officers. Following her formal testimony, Lieutentant Tucker was questioned by the Committee's deputy council Richard Lynch. Other speakers, male, not sure if they are identified.
