Female investigator not concerned with 'first' title

LUDOWICI, GA (WTOC) - Police investigator Diannia Duncan moves from being a uniformed patrol officer to being the Ludowici's first female investigator. She's spent decades in a wide range of law enforcement fields. She began her career as a K-9 handler in the Army's military police. From there, she's worked in corrections, federal law enforcement. After moving to Ludowici, she began working with the Brunswick Police Department. When she started with Ludowici, she was the city's first female patrol officer.
She said she isn't as concerned with her "first" designation as she is the opportunity to help people. "I don't know if it's me being a female or me having been in the military. I just try to make people feel the way I would want to feel if I were in their situation," she said.
Her boss agreed.
"She has a keen interest in forensics, she also sees what goes on with people when they are victims of crime. These are some of the things that make her one of the better investigators I've run across in my career," explained Chief Richard Robertson.

Duncan said she would not be able to do the job without the teamwork with the city's road officers.
