CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Debra Walters is still getting used to the title of captain.

"It feels pretty good," she said. "I probably thought I would make lieutenant but not captain."

Walters, who has been in law enforcement for more than 36 years, recently became the first woman captain in the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department.
