Earlier this month, Chief John Batiste promoted four individuals who have gone above and beyond for the State of Washington and its citizens.
Due to the pandemic, the ceremony had a limited number of in-person attendees. However, the WSP livestreams every promotional ceremony on our WSP Facebook account.
Promoted from Sergeant in South Seattle (District 2) to Lieutenant assigned to the Motor Carrier Safety Division.
Promoted from Trooper in Bellevue (District 2) to Sergeant in Bremerton (District 8). Sergeant Gannon has since transferred to Tacoma (District 1).
Promoted from Trooper Detective in the Major Accident Investigation Team to Sergeant in Yakima (District 3). Sergeant McBride has since transferred to the Spokane Criminal Investigation Unit.
Promoted from Deputy State Fire Marshal with the Fire Protection Bureau to Chief Deputy State Fire Marshal with the Fire Protection Bureau (Inspection Section).
