Really?? This is news worthy? Perhaps IN Aurora but no where else. This "first Female" First Black" First gay" first Transsexual? etc etc has to stop. Do we announce when the first Irish or Polish Chief is appointed in say, a heavily Hispanic city, NO WE DO NOT. So why this politically correct "look at how progressive we are" crap. I might understand it if it were in a major city or head of a State Police or Federal Agency, but a small suburban force of perhaps a 100 or less cops? This is gong on perpetually. If females (and others) wish to be treated as professionals, this "first" stuff should end. If she is qualified (or not for that matter) it should only matter to Aurora Il, and to very few other people.
