Veteran lieutenant retiring from Leesburg Police Department
Lieutenant Jeff Dubé, who has served the department in many roles over the past two decades, including public information office, is retiring to pursue the next chapter in his life, he said. His final day is Dec. 31.
A retirement celebration was held at Ida Lee Park Recreation Center Dec. 20. Town officials said the large attendance at the gathering was a testament to the career and character of Dubé.
First-year Leesburg Chief of Police Gregory Brown, in a prepared statement, said, “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.”
Dubé "enjoyed the interaction with the media as he tried to keep the community informed about human interest stories as well as emergencies as they unfolded,” states a news release from the town.
Dubé joined the agency in the fall of 1993 after serving eight years on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps.
During his tenure in Leesburg, Lt. Dubé 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.
Leesburg Police plans to hire full-time public information officer, a civilian position, following Dubé's departure.
