PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Hundreds attended services Wednesday for a Treasure Coast police officer who suddenly died last week.

Port St. Lucie police officer Steven Brown suffered a fatal heart attack after completing a third day of leading the Port St. Lucie Police Athletic League’s police camp.

The 40 year old was one of the camp leaders as part of his summertime duties as a school resource officer.

“He was involved in things that matter. He was a road police officer for a long time, then he chose the community programs path, and he was very active in it,” said Port St. Lucie Master Sgt. Rick Schichtel.

Brown served Port St. Lucie for 14 years. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
