Longtime islander joins Bainbridge police forceJuly 30th, 2014 by Ethan Fowler
Jon Bingham is in his second week of work after being hired by the city as Bainbridge Island Police Department’s newest officer.
Bingham is a longtime Bainbridge resident and previously served as a reserve officer with the BIPD for nearly six years.
Bingham comes to the Bainbridge Island Police Department after working the last three years with the Suquamish Police Department.
“Joining the BIPD is a great opportunity for me to give back and serve the community I was raised in,” Bingham said in a news release.
With Bingham’s hiring, Police Chief Matthew Hamner said three vacant officers positions remain to be filled. When BIPD is fully staffed, it has 19 officers and two administrators, which includes Hamner and a deputy chief.
