WWPD promotes new Patrol Sergeant

Posted: Updated:

WALLA WALLA, WA - Detective Eric Knudson was promoted to the rank of Sergeant to fill an opening in the Patrol Division following the retirement of Sgt. Mike Ralston at the end of last year.

He was also selected as one of the Department’s Field Training Officers, tasked with training new recruits.

For the past four years, Knudson has been assigned to the Investigations Division as a Detective. He is a certified Computer Forensics Examiner and a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, working cases related to child pornography.

Knudson is also the President of the Walla Walla Police Guild.
