Celinez Nunez may have one of the more challenging law-enforcement positions in the nation.

The 41-year-old woman recently was named the special agent in charge of the ATF’s Chicago office at a time when the city is struggling to curtail a rising number of murders, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. 

In 2016, more than 760 people were killed, marking the highest murder rate in Chicago in decades. 

President Trump has claimed Chicago has done an inadequate job handling murders. According to sources, dozens of ATF agents are likely to be added to the ATF office to fight gun violence.

Nunez said she plans to meet with the acting U.S. attorney to discuss how to increase prosecutions of murderers.

“I am going to look at the cases my agents are putting together, too, to make sure they’re meeting the requirements of the U.S. attorney’s office,” she said. “I will make sure my agents are working solid cases so that when they take it to the U.S. attorney’s office for prosecution, they should not be turned down.”

Late last year, Renae McDermott became the first woman to be appointed as Special Agent in Charge of the Knoxville FBI division.

It’s a significant achievement sine only 12% of the senior-ranking positions in the FBI are held by women, WBIR reports. 

McDermott’s career with the FBI began in 1989, holding positions in Dallas, Albuquerque and Washington D.C. headquarters.

Before the appointment, McDermott served as special assistant to FBI James Comey.

When McDermott was growing up in Pittsburgh, she wanted to be a farmer. But while in college, she discovered a desire to help children.

“I knew I wanted to be a public servant after I went through the not being a dairy farmer, a veterinarian or a teacher. I ended up finding a good niche with the FBI,” McDermott said.

While she has worked in counter-terrorism and cyber crimes, most of her work involving fighting violent crime.

“The most proud (moment of my career) was probably an investigation that happened when I was initially an agent in Miami. A kidnapping of a mother and two sons at Christmastime. We worked diligently on it for a week and we recovered them alive. That has been and will be one of the highlights early on in my career,” she said.

Just two months before Jack Bennett became special agent in charge of the FBI’s San Francisco division in May, the 52-year-old played a key role in accessing the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone.

Bennet was working at the FBI’s computer investigation lab in Quantico, Va., when the bureau received help from an outside company to hack into the iPhone, the Associated Press reports. 

“There wasn’t high fives, and there weren’t people singing down the hallways,” he recalled. “It was very much business. ‘OK, let’s move forward to the next steps. Let’s get on the phone. What do we need to do to purchase the tool?'”

Bennett, who has nearly 30 years of experience in law enforcement, has battled drug smuggling operations for the DEA before tackling child sex crimes and animal rights extremists for the FBI.

“The U.S. government sometimes loses sight of what is important to corporations … and privacy is incredibly important,” Bennett said during a recent interview at his office.
