After 25 years serving the City of South Burlington as a police officer, Sergeant Douglas C. Dubie retired Friday. Over the radio, he signed off for the last time outside the Police station on Gregory Drive. Dispatch acknowledged and thanked him for his service.
Sgt. Dubie served with SBPD for 25 years holding assignments in patrol, school resource officer, training / dispatch supervision, having earned the formal rank of Sergeant during his career. Sgt. Dubie is a native of Burlington, a graduate of Rice Memorial, and Norwich University.
Chief Burke remarked, “Doug is everything society is looking for in 21st Century Policing, a local person who commits their professional life to serving their neighbors, a community that is home and a place where the expectations of the police are clear and shared”. The department will miss Sgt. Dubie’s jovial demeanor, experience, and love for the job but recognizes that a quarter century in policing is a lot to give, his retirement is well earned.
The City will formally honor Sgt. Dubie when we are allowed to convene.
