(Salt Lake City-AP) -- After more than a century, a woman will be promoted to Captain in the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Leslee Collins was the first woman to be promoted Lieutenant in the Law Enforcement Bureau in 1998 and Tuesday she'll be the first woman promoted to captain in the department's 154-year history.

Collins began her career with the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office in 1982.

She worked on patrol, then worked in the child abuse, child sex crimes unit.

Collins later worked in the Juvenile Alcohol and Drug Unit, served as a Sergeant in the COP Unit and was a Lieutenant at the 2002 Winter Olympics.

She's currently the Chief of Law Enforcement Services in Taylorsville and will continue her work there as a Captain.
