As Constable Jan Ferris on Da Vinci's City Hall aka Da Vinci's Inquest, Bailly played the leader of a gang of renegade cops. In preparation for the role, Bailly rode with police officers to some of the toughest areas in the city, witnessing first-hand the many dangers and realities of being a cop. She also had additional tactical training and learned how to handle firearms and other devices that go with the job. On Da Vinci's Inquest, her performance so won over the writers a one-episode part evolved into a multiple-episode arc and finally a regular role.[citation needed]
