Paul Rivas interviews Cathy Farley on her lifetime of kicking butt, migrating from Chicago to Santa Barbara in the way back of a station wagon, coming to UCSB as a transfer student from Mira Costa College, competing as a thrower on the UCSB Track & Field team for the legendary Sam Adams, her second-degree black belt in karate, winning the 1987 Miss Santa Barbara bodybuilding competition, how her Police Academy experience was just like the movies, having done every local law enforcement job that's ever existed, the fact that assaults in Isla Vista is nothing new, what policing UCSB involves, training at the FBI National Academy, her interest student activism, surviving breast cancer, hoping Floatopia can make a comeback as a locals-only event, and her new gig as the first-ever Assistant Chief of the local UCPD.
