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.”
