When New York Police Department Officer, Carol Shaya posed nude for Playboy magazine she drew the wrath of many of her female colleagues. They felt that her striptease in uniform knocked their progress back by twenty years. In another case, Sergeant Cibella Borges was sacked from the force in 1983 for appearing in a hard core men’s magazine. Her case was taken to the High Court where she was reinstated. NYPD Nude interviews Carol, Cibella and other women within the NYPD and explores the boundaries between private and professional life in the Carol Shaya case.
