In 1992, she was promoted to Police Officer III+I, and was the first woman assigned to Valley Traffic Detectives.  Captain Ryan promoted to Detective in 1994 and was assigned to Hollywood and West Valley Divisions.  In 1995, she was selected to work Robbery-Homicide Division, where she worked many high profile and complex investigations in both the Rape Special Section and the Officer-Involved Shooting Section.  Captain Ryan promoted up the detective ranks at both Robbery-Homicide Division and Critical Incident Investigation Division.  Captain Ryan carried on her supervisory role as a Detective III working Force Investigation Division.  She was promoted to Lieutenant in May 2005 and was assigned to Hollenbeck Patrol as a Watch Commander.  In May 2006, Captain Ryan became the Detective Watch Commander at Hollenbeck Detectives where she remained until her promotion to Captain in July 2008. 

Upon her promotion to Captain, she was selected to be the Patrol Commanding Officer of the new Topanga Division.  Captain Ryan is the first female Captain to open a new division in LAPD history.  She was very honored by her selection.

Throughout her career, Captain Ryan has been sought as an instructor for many Department schools, as well as for community organizations.  She was an instructor in Sexual Assault and Major Assault Crimes Schools, Basic Detective and Detective Supervisor School, Sergeant and Watch Commander Schools, and the Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigation Course.  She has provided training for several organizations that provide Rape Hotline counseling and advocacy for survivors of sexual assault.  Captain Ryan holds two certificates from the Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigation, one in Homicide and the other in Sexual Assault Investigations.  Captain Ryan is a graduate of the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute and the West Point Leadership Program.
