Wofford promoted to Port Orchard police sergeant

Promoted officer is a 20-year veteran for police force

PORT ORCHARD — Erik Wofford, a 20-year veteran of the Port Orchard police department, has been promoted to sergeant, according to the department.

Wofford was hired as a patrol officer in 2000. He has served in various capacities including peer support, crisis negotiator, field training officer and technical collision investigator. He has been a motorcycle officer, an emergency vehicle operations instructor, and most recently a school resource officer with the South Kitsap School District.

“Our selection process can be grueling,” Chief Matt Brown said. “ It includes a written test, a work performance review and an assessment center, which provided several live scenarios for candidates to work through.

“All of the candidates did well and made for a tough decision.”
