The first woman to lead the Rhode Island State Police has been sworn in.

Col. Ann Assumpico is the 13th superintendent of the state police and the first woman to lead any policy agency in Rhode Island.

She was sworn in on Monday by Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo at a ceremony at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.

Assumpico also holds the dual role of the state's director of public safety.

She's been leading the state police since Raimondo appointed her in November, but the public safety director position required the state Senate's advice and consent. The Senate unanimously confirmed her earlier this month.
