It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you the newest member of the Ocean Shores Police Department, Sergeant Ken Denny. Sergeant Denny brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team, and we are thrilled to have him join our team.

Sergeant Denny's journey in law enforcement began at a young age when he was hired as a volunteer explorer cadet with the Lacey Police Department at just 16 years old. He continued in this role until the age of 21, gaining valuable insights into the world of policing. Following this, he was hired by the Napavine Police Department, where he served as a Reserve Police Officer for four years.

His dedication to law enforcement led him to the Asotin Police Department, where he worked as a full-time police officer for a year and a half before lateralling to Grays Harbor. At the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office, Sgt. Denny served as a Deputy Sheriff for an impressive 17 years. During his time there, he took on various roles, including EVOC instructor, boating officer and instructor, traffic officer, and detective in the investigations division.
