Captain Kristin Brown

Captain Kristin Brown, whose family hails from Dunbar, WV, lived in many places – including Pensacola - while growing up as the family moved to new assignments during her father’s Marine Corps career.

She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminology from Troy State University and decided to live in Pensacola because her parents retired here. 

She was hired as a cadet on January 29, 1996; promoted to police officer on June 30, 1997; to sergeant on April 10, 2006; to lieutenant on August 3, 2015; and to captain on May 22, 2017.

Among her assignments at the Pensacola Police Department have been Uniform Patrol, field training officer, TAC, Vice & Narcotics, Crisis Negotiation Team, and Criminal Investigations, which she currently supervises.
