CHARLESTON, W.Va. — It's a tough job running the Charleston Police Department's patrol division, but apparently they've got the right woman for it.

In fact, the department got the only woman who has ever single-handedly run the division, which is the home base for more than 90 officers, ranking from patrolman to lieutenant.
