Southwest Harbor Mourns the Loss of Chief Alan Brown

 Fox Bangor New's Kayla Fish reporting:

"The Hancock County law enforcement community is mourning the sudden and tragic loss of one of its own, as Southwest Harbor Police Chief Alan Brown passed away Friday morning.

"Ellsworth police say Brown was helping family working on a deck at a family camp on Green Lake in Ellsworth, when he suffered a possible heart attack.

"Family members and emergency medical personnel who responded gave Brown CPR, to no avail. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Brown was well-respected in the Hancock County law enforcement community, having served as an investigator for many years with the sheriff’s office before becoming chief of the Southwest Harbor police in 2015.

"Ellsworth Police Chief Glenn Moshier said Brown served with expertise, and his impact could be felt throughout the region. He sent his condolences to Brown’s family."

We at the Southwest Harbor Chamber of Commerce will miss Chief Brown. His good advice and assistance made our Fireworks Displays and Oktoberfest Festival events run smoothly and safely. Our condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues.
