Salt Lake County, UT Sheriff’s Office gets first female SWAT officer.

In the history of the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office…

In the history of the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the Unified Police Department, there has never been a woman on the SWAT team, until now.

The UPD announced this week that officer Librada “Trina” Chacon was recently selected to the specialized team after completing a rigorous tryout with high marks.

To highlight the occasion, UPD introduced Chacon to the public Wednesday as the team trained with explosives and chemical munitions.

The UPD SWAT tactical team, which formed in the early 1990s, takes part in high-risk police operations.
