On February 10, 1992, Officer St. Laurent began his career with the Jupiter Police Department.  During his twenty years of service, Officer St. Laurent went above and beyond his normal duties as a Police Officer, leaving a positive impact on many people within our community.  Officer St. Laurent demonstrated his commitment to his community by playing the role of Santa Clause during local holiday events.  He always enjoyed helping young people and would assist students from Jupiter High School performing physics experiments related to speed measurement.

In 1996, Officer St. Laurent also gave his time to assist in the construction of a Habitat for Humanity home in Jupiter.  After helping build the home, he went even further and welcomed the new homeowners with a basketball hoop and basketball he had purchased just for them.

The genuine kindness and generosity Officer St. LaurentPhotos of Officer St. Laurent has shown our community over the years did not go unnoticed.  He has received countless thank you letters from citizens in the community and numerous letters of commendation.  In 1993, 1996, and again in 2008, Officer St. Laurent was selected as the Jupiter Police Department’s Officer of theOfficer St Laurent Fund Quarter. Officer St. Laurent received the top award in 1996 when he was selected as the Officer of the Year.

Bruce St. Laurent was a valued member of our community and employee within the Town of Jupiter. He was an amazing person who will be missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to know him.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
