An Auburn Police Department Lieutenant retired Thursday, February 28, 2013 after 31 years of distinguished service with the department.
Lieutenant Paul Labarre, originally from Connecticut, has been a longtime Auburn resident. He has been employed by the department since October 04, 1982. Labarre dedicated his law enforcement career to the Patrol Division, retiring as a Patrol Watch Commander.
During his tenure, Lieutenant Labarre has led by example, and he has served with honor, integrity, loyalty and excellence.
“We are grateful for Paul’s service,” said Auburn Police Chief Phil Crowell. “We thank him for his dedication, hard work and personal sacrifice while serving the citizens of Auburn.”
A trusted mentor and loyal public servant, Labarre has been a valued member of the Auburn Police Department. He has had a positive impact on both his peers and the citizens of Auburn, and his professionalism, experience and friendship will not be forgotten.
The men and women of the Auburn Police Department wish Lieutenant Labarre (and his wife Marybeth) the best in his retirement. He will be missed.
