Callahan was promoted to sergeant of the Marseille police
Callahan has been with the department since 2007 and started as a part-time officer. Eventually, he became both a full-time officer and a training officer.
Callahan grew up in Marseille and studied law enforcement in her father's footsteps. His father, John Callahan, worked for the Marseille Police Department, the Grand Ridge Police Department and the La Salle County Sheriff's Office. She currently works as a coroner for Grundy County.
Callahan said she is grateful for the promotion and said that what she likes most about her career is getting to know the community and setting a standard for what children can expect from a police officer.
"Probably (I like) the most connection with the community," said Callahan. "Going out and interacting with kids and trying to bridge and fill the gap between what they see and what we actually do."
