Recently we said good bye to Dennis Police Sergeant Craig Stevenson. In his 29 year career with the Dennis Police Sergeant Stevenson wore a great many hats. Most notably to this forum is that he was the first ever Dennis Police school resource officer. In 1994 Yarmouth Police Detective Steven Xiarhos was in his seventh year at the school post. That was when the Dennis Police decided to lend an officer to the effort of providing police service to the regional school district. The decision led to an expansion of the program from the high school into districts two middle schools, Mattacheese and Wixon. The success of any program depends on the personnel selected to make it happen and the Dennis Police chose well in Craig Stevenson. His easy way with the students made him approachable, his even handed manner made him trustworthy, and his professional competence made him effective. Steve Xiarhos left the post a few months after Craig joined the team they had dubbed “D-Y P.D.” which made Craig the senior man. He was an excellent teacher and a great partner to the new guy from Yarmouth, Nick Pasquarosa (yours truly) who learned a great many lessons from Craig’s example. It was both a sad and happy experience to see Craig move on to other assignments. The best complement that can be paid is that he blazed the trail for three other Dennis police officers to follow into the schools. The program he helped to build stands tall today because of the foundation he laid. Bon voyage, and thank you my brother.
