The Leesburg Police Department is saying goodbye to a longtime officer and supervisor as Lt. Jeff Dubé retires Jan. 1.
Dubé joined the force in 1993 after eight years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps. During his tenure, he served in many roles, including field training officer, shift supervisor, training officer, civil disturbance unit commander, recruitment and hiring, property and evidence, and the accreditation manager. He has been responsible for the School Resource Officer Program, the Traffic Management Unit and the Information Services Section, which includes the Records Section and Emergency Dispatch Center. Most notably, Dubé served as the department’s public information officer for many years.
The department celebrated his retirement during a Dec. 20 banquet at the Ida Lee Recreation Center.
“While I have known Jeff for many years, during the short time I have been with Leesburg, I have been more than impressed by his attention to detail, customer service philosophy and work ethic,” Chief Gregory Brown stated.
“Jeff has enjoyed a successful law enforcement career and has had a positive impact on many as a supervisor, a co-worker, a mentor and a friend,” Deputy Chief Major Vanessa Grigsby added.
