Clallam County Sheriff’s Office adds two deputies

On March 29, Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict swore in Erika Andrews as a Corrections Deputy and Kevin Gleason as a Patrol Deputy.

Andrews grew up in Clallam County, graduated from Western Washington University and spent a year studying in Japan. She returned to Clallam County and was hired by the Lower Elwha Casino before deciding to make a career change. She will be starting the Corrections Academy this summer and currently is in training in the Clallam County Corrections Facility.

Gleason was a military policeman in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years and is married with two young daughters. A native of a small town in Northern California, he relocated to his wife’s hometown of Sequim after leaving the Marine Corps. Gleason will start the Police Academy at the end of April and upon graduation will spend a few months with Clallam County Sheriff’s Office field training officers.

Civil deputy added

On April 3, Sheriff Benedict swore in Nelson Morgan as a Civil Deputy.

Morgan is a Chief Petty Officer in the United States Naval Reserve and lives in Sequim with his wife and two dogs.

He is currently training with Civil Deputy Zellar on how to administer the Sex Offender program, Firearm Applicant Processing and Sheriff’s Civil Process.

Morgan will attend the Criminal Justice Training Center Civil School as part of his training.
