    Fiancee of West Linn police officer who died last year joins the ranks

    By Holly Bartholomew,


    PORTLAND, Ore. ( PORTLAND TRIBUNE) — Gabby Bieberly-Cordry was initially unsure about applying to work at the West Linn Police Department.

    Though a career in law enforcement had been her goal since she was a child, she was no longer certain if it was the right path after her partner and the father of her 1-year-old daughter died of complications following a cardiac arrest last November.

    But Chief Peter Mahuna made a promise that sealed the deal, and so she was sworn in April 22, 2024.

    Bieberly-Cordry, 26, grew up in nearby Oregon City with dreams of becoming a cop thanks to a role model who worked in law enforcement. When she was a teenager, she became a cadet with the Milwaukie Police Department, devoting herself to the work until making captain.

    Soon she met Ethan Cordry.

    “I swore to myself I was never going to date anyone in law enforcement, because I know what the divorce rates are like,” Bieberly-Cordry said.
