He earned his bachelor’s degree at Washington State University while serving in the Army and Army National Guard to pay for school. After graduation, Senator Holy began a 22 year career with the Spokane Police Department as an officer and detective.

He also serves on the board of directors for LEOFF II, the retirement plan for Washington state law enforcement officers and firefighters.
