Deputies Melissa Wood and Dylan Helser are current employees of the sheriff’s office.
Wood previously served as the evidence officer and she served as a weapons screener at the court house.
Helser has been working as a corrections deputy at the Mason County Jail and previously served as a reserve deputy for the sheriff’s office.
Both deputies are lifelong residents of Mason County.
Sheriff Salisbury stated, “It is great to see local people grow up to serve our community.”
Wood and Helser will be assigned as field training officers until they are confirmed to attend the Basic Law Enforcement Academy at the Criminal Justice Training Center, located in Burien.
They will receive 720 hours of instruction over a five-month period.
