New York police officer fights crime by day, models lingerie by night

As a crime fighter by day and a cover girl by night, police officer Samantha Sepulved is living the textbook definition of a double life.

Officer Sepulved, who works in Freeport, New York, told the New York Post that she joined the force in 2010 -- but it wasn't until a friend who worked for a lingerie and swimsuit company invited her to participate in a 2013 fashion show that her modeling career began.

Since then, the 5-foot-2 cop's stunning shots have earned her over 195,000 followers on Instagram -- but she says that isn't the only benefit to her good looks.

BACK TO SLIDE

She told the New York Post that she tends to be less intimidating to criminals, and that "with a female officer, their guard is lowered. There's less aggression and the situation is defused."

But this hero in blue isn't all looks -- officer Sepulved also graduated cum laude from University of Massachusetts with a BA in management.
