Former Bangor Police Chief Don Winslow Dies

Former Bangor Police Chief Don Winslow passed away today (July 10) after a long battle with cancer.

Bangor Police Chief Mark Hathaway said in a press release today that Chief Winslow served with the Bangor Police Department from 1998 to 2007. He began his public safety career as a firefighter in Old Town in 1976. In 1979, he joined the Bangor Police Department where he served in nearly every position, including patrol officer, undercover drug agent, detective, sergeant, lieutenant, and deputy chief, before his confirmation as Police Chief. He was also one of the department’s first DARE officers.

“Don lived his life, managed his police department,and fought his battle with cancer in much the same way – with courage, compassion, and always with a great sense of humor,” Hathaway said in the release.”He will always be our chief.”

Chief Don Winslow died at home, surrounded by family and friends. He was 57 years old.

Service arrangements and information regarding a memorial will be announced.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Chief Winslow, but I’ve never heard anything but wonderful things about what a nice and good man he was. That says a lot. Rest in peace, sir. Thank you for your service.
