Sergeant Stevenson served on the Dennis Police Department for 29 years. Because of a serious illness he retired as a Police Sergeant in 2015, but because he loved being a Police Officer and the Town of Dennis he continued to work part-time as one of the Department’s Victim Services Coordinators. During his years of dedicated service Craig was a Patrol Officer, Juvenile Officer, Field Training Officer, Detective, Narcotics Detective, SWAT Negotiator, Family Services Officer, Patrol Sergeant and then Victim Services Coordinator.

Craig will always be remembered as a hardworking, caring officer who truly enjoyed helping people and making their lives better. During Craig’s time here he received over 100 “Thank You” and “Appreciation” letters from citizens and professional organizations that he had helped over the years and made a positive impact on. Craig also received many Department Letters of Commendation as well as Excellent Police Duty and Exceptional Investigation Awards. The Dennis Police Department and the Town of Dennis will always be a better place because of the hard work, compassion and honorable service Sergeant Stevenson provided.
