PORT ANGELES — A detective who has earned honors for her work helping victims of assault and domestic violence is getting a step up.

When Detective Amy Bundy is promoted this week, she will become the first female patrol sergeant in the history of the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, the office said in a news release.

Sheriff Bill Benedict hosted a promotions ceremony for Bundy on Thursday at the Emergency Operations Center in Port Angeles.

“Bundy has the energy, enthusiasm and drive to protect and serve the citizens of Clallam County and her promotion to sergeant is well deserved,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

Bundy was hired as a deputy in August 2013.

She previously had worked as a police officer with the Blaine Police Department and as a Corrections Officer for Clallam County Juvenile Services.

Bundy is an experienced child interviewer and investigator and fluent in Spanish, sheriff’s office representatives said.

In 2015, Bundy was presented with a Commendation Award for her investigation of a sexual assault and human trafficking case; she used her Spanish-language skills to interview the victim, who did not speak English.

In January 2016, Bundy was transferred to the detectives’ department, and in March 2016 she was part of the team that worked a child sexual abuse investigation involving a teacher at a private school for which she received a Commendation Award.

Bundy received another Commendation Award in 2016 for her work on a difficult and complex child homicide case, sheriff’s office representatives said.

In April 2016, Bundy was presented with the Healthy Families Gratitude Award for her exceptional work on behalf of victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

The following year, Bundy received the Meritorious Unit Citation for her work on a homicide involving a Sequim resident.
