Police Officer's Unusual Moonlighting Gig Is Much Different From Her Day Job Some call Samantha Sepulveda the most beautiful cop in the world. But when she’s not on duty, this hot cop's secret double life has her wearing some very different outfits... Matthew Loffhagen Officer Sepulveda Reporting for DutyImage By: Instagram/sammysepBorn in the Dominican Republic, Samantha Sepulveda is a typical New Yorker. Her mother moved her family to the U.S. when Samantha was 5 and worked in a factory to support them. The Thin Blue LineImage By: Instagram/sammysepSepulveda didn’t start out wanting to be a cop. She studied for an MBA in finance at Hofstra University before changing her mind about her future career. Ultimately, she decided she wanted to give back to the community, so she enrolled in the police academy. Lacrosse HeroImage By: Instagram/sammysepBack during her time at college, Sepulveda played for her school’s lacrosse team. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that she was formidable on the field. She racked up an impressive number of goals across her games, becoming the seventh-highest scorer in her team’s history. Life in the Force ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepUpon graduation from the academy, Sepulveda joined the Freeport Police Department in Long Island. Her new job wasn’t easy, because she was a lot smaller than most of her male colleagues. But Sepulveda, an ardent feminist, pushed through to earn the respect of her peers. Officer Rights ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepSepulveda believes life as a cop shouldn’t have to be violent and painful. She believes cops choose the profession out of a desire to make a difference and help people. She strives to make the world a safer place for everyone, including her fellow officers. Hiding in Plain Sight ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepBlending in as a police officer can be difficult when you’re exceptionally beautiful. Sepulveda applies different tactics to help her look the part while at work. She’ll often wear very little makeup while on duty, and deliberately wears larger uniforms that conceal her figure. Taking Down Criminals ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepBut even criminals can’t help spotting Sepulveda’s remarkable beauty. Once, while chasing a suspect, Sepulveda was confronting by the man she was supposed to be pursuing. He told her she was the most beautiful cop he’d ever seen, and he asked her out. She arrested him. A Natural Beauty ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepBecause of her beauty, Sepulveda sometimes struggles to be taken seriously as a cop. At the same time, it makes it easier for people to trust her. When she started as a cop, Sepulveda had no idea just how complicated this would make her life. A Gun Enthusiast ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepSepulveda has made it clear through her online presence that she’s an ardent supporter of the right to bear arms. Packing heat comes naturally with her job as a police officer. But her fondness for firearms means that even when dressed more casually, she’s still a force to be reckoned with. Life Out of Uniform ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepDespite being a tough, hard-working cop while on duty, Sepulveda looks very different when out of uniform. Her job requires dressing down to a certain extent and looking as masculine as possible. The rest of the time, she’s free to look fabulous. Not long into her career as a cop, she discovered that her looks could open doors to a completely different profession... Opportunity Knocks ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepJust a few years after joining the police force, a friend encouraged Sepulveda to take part in a fashion show, modelling lingerie. But while this was meant as just a bit of fun, it ended up changing her life forever... Big Break ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepImmediately after Sepulveda’s brief time on the catwalk, she fielded offers for her services as a lingerie and swimwear model. It was the beginning of an exciting double life, and she began balancing her police work with a completely different side job. At first, she couldn’t imagine just how far it would take her... Moonlighting ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepIt wasn’t uncommon for officers in Sepulveda’s force to take on second jobs to help pay the bills. Many cops also worked as builders, plumbers or bouncers to help make ends meet. Thus, Sepulveda felt it was no different for her to start working as a model. Traveling the World ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepModeling allows Sepulveda to see the world. She often flies out during her off-duty time to different major cities to take part in photo shoots. Sometimes it’s stressful going immediately from this lifestyle back to her day job, but Sepulveda still loves being a cop. Secret Identity ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepFor a while, Sepulveda kept her job as a model a secret. It was hard to keep things from her colleagues forever, though. Especially as her Instagram account blew up. Eventually, her fellow cops began to suspect what she was up to when off-duty... Cover Blown ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepSepulveda managed to keep her two careers separate for a while. Then a New York Times photo shoot introduced her to the world as both a cop and a fashion model. After this, her popularity skyrocketed. And she lost a good chunk of anonymity. Still Working Hard ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepIn spite of her fame, Sepulveda continues her day job as a police officer. Her fellow officers tease her plenty about her double life, but her fame hasn’t affected her service. So she’s free to keep up the delicate balancing act between two different worlds. Making the World a Better Place ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepConsidering her dedication to police work, it’s no surprise Sepulveda tries to use her modeling to promote positive change. She considers her photos to be a celebration of female beauty as she encourages women to be themselves. Many Talents ADVERTISEMENT Image By: Instagram/sammysepSepulveda doesn’t just use her police skills and modelling to help others. She’s also putting her finance degree to work as part of a sustainable energy project in Thailand. That’s a lot of different roles for one person, but she manages the balancing act.
