Gary Koon was sworn in as a Bainbridge Island police officer at a ceremony at city hall last week.
In front of the city council and a considerable share of the police department, Koon took his oath to serve and protect Bainbridge Island. The oath was administered by Judge Kathryn Carruthers at the council’s meeting on Dec. 5.
Koon comes to the island after being president of his class at the police academy. He is a graduate of Oregon State University and spent 13 years in the Marine Corps.
