GEORGETOWN – Police Chief Donald C. Cudmore announces that a longtime member of the Georgetown Police Department will retire this March.
Sgt. Kevin DeFeo will officially retire on March 7 after serving Georgetown for the last 34 years.
“Sgt. DeFeo will be missed beyond words,” Chief Cudmore said. “As the Chief, I relied on him daily for his computer expertise and advanced knowledge of criminal law. I have worked with Sgt. DeFeo for over 30 years and his presence will be missed in this community. I wish him the very best in a happy and healthy retirement.”
Sgt. DeFeo began his career with Georgetown Police in 1987 as a reserve dispatcher and worked his way up to the rank of Patrol Sergeant by 2007. He was an instrumental leader in helping to upgrade the department’s technology in order to help members provide the best possible service to the community. He also supervised patrol operations for many years on the early night shift.
Due to state and local guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, a formal retirement gathering will not take place. However, a small group of his peers met in the fire department garage on Monday, Jan. 11 for an informal, socially distanced event, where he was provided various gifts and a retirement plaque.
