Long-time DPS employee, Sergeant Stephen St. Jean, has retired from the department and Brown University after 38 1/2 years of dedicated service!
Sgt. St. Jean began his rich career in law enforcement in 1979 and worked in various capacities within patrol, retiring as a first-shift Sergeant supervisor. On July 27, 2017, the department honored Steve with a retirement party attended by his wife, Pamela, his daughter, who flew in from L.A. to celebrate the important milestone with her father, and many of his closest colleagues and friends from across the University.
Steve's daughter offered a heartfelt speech and there were not many dry eyes in the room! She reflected on his unwavering commitment and pride serving the Brown University community over the years. Steve will be remembered as one of the most charismatic, compassionate, dedicated, and hard-working members of our department. Several members of DPS also shared reflections about Steve as a mentor, colleague, and friend.
We are grateful for all of his dedicated years of service and the memories of our time working with him. He truly cared about the community and left his heart on the table here.
We wish Steve and Pam only the best that retirement and life has to offer. And lastly, thank you Sgt. St. Jean - we will miss you!
