On Thursday, June 4, the Upstate SC Chapter of Sisters in Crime has the pleasure of welcoming Cpl. Eric Brown, Westminster, SC, Police Department, who will talk about the challenges of crime and violence in high schools and programs for juveniles.

Cpl. Brown has been a police officer for 15 years, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, and is working on a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.  He spent the first nine years of his law enforcement career in the Clearwater-Tampa, Florida, with three of those years working as a School Resource Officer. He joined the Seneca, SC, Police Department six years ago and has served as a School Resource Officer for Seneca High School. He recently transferred to the Westminster Police Department where his responsibilities include programs for juveniles.

“Being a School Resource Officer is like being a one-man police force,” he says. “You are the chief, the investigator, the patrol officer, the counselor. You have to wear many different hats.”

Cpl. Brown lives in Seneca, SC, with his wife, Dee. They have seven children.

The monthly Sisters in Crime meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 4, at The Runway Café, 21 Airport Rd, Greenville, S.C.  Be there at 6:15 p.m. to meet Cpl. Brown and enjoy chapter fellowship. Supper should be served at 6:30. Our guest’s presentation will begin right after new and old business at 7 p.m. Both the dinner and the meeting are open to the public.
