Kelly Eisenhood is in her second week of training as Bainbridge Island Police Department’s new senior police clerk.

Eisenhood is replacing retiring senior police clerk Ted Rought, who has been working with Eisenhood to smooth the transition. Rought’s last day is Thursday and will cap a 19-1/2 year career at BIPD.

Eisenhood, who was born and raised in Richmond, British Columbia, had previously worked the last 6 ½ years as an administrative assistant at New Motion Physical Therapy clinic on Bainbridge. Her husband of seven years, Ian Eisenhood, will be entering his 10th year of teaching Wilkes Elementary School. The couple have a 4-year-old son.

“I’m eager to be of service to the residents of Bainbridge Island as part of the BIPD team,” Eisenhood said.

Eisenhood’s hiring process was overseen by the city’s Civil Service Commission. It included passing a civil service exam and an oral interview process with two community members, a Bainbridge police officer and another officer from a different police department.

“We are thrilled to have her on board,” said Barbara Burns, BIPD administrative coordinator, of Eisenhood.
