There's a new sheriff in town in Fairfax County.

Stacey Kincaid was elected sheriff Tuesday, becoming the first female sheriff in the county's history. Kincaid, who is a Democrat, has worked in the sheriff's department for more than 25 years.

Kincaid won the race with close to 54 percent of vote, defeating Republican Bryan Wolfe and a pair of Independents, Chris DeCarlo and Robert Rivera.

She'll oversee the county's jail and courthouse in her new role.
