Ragina Cooper spent the past eight years building a resume in the Baltimore City Police Department: four years on patrol in the Northeastern District. A year on the domestic violence squad. Three years as a department spokeswoman. When she was named director of the department's public affairs division recently, it was one of the proudest moments of her life. But she didn't attend the ceremony where her promotion was announced. Instead, she was on a plane to Hawaii for another of life's momentous events: her wedding.

I added those italics myself, to illustrate what the issue is here.
