Kevin began his law enforcement career with the City of Newburgh, NY Police Department and joined the Brookfield Police Department on October 12, 1977. He faithfully served the citizens of Brookfield for nearly 36 years, retiring as a full-time officer on April 20, 2013. Kevin continued his association with the Brookfield Police Department, in retirement, serving as a Special Police Officer until the time of his death. During his lengthy career with the Brookfield Police Department, Kevin was a member of the SCUBA Team, served as a Field Training Officer, was a police union official and received numerous awards and commendations for exceptional police work.
Kevin was a beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. We will miss him and bear his passing with heavy hearts as we hold his family uppermost in our thoughts and prayers
