Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office Honors Dispatcher’s Retirement

Today we are celebrating one of the legacies of what makes Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office great as we honor the service of one of our dispatchers in her retirement.
Jan Potter Coburn was born July 13, 1955. She married Kenneth Coburn on September 15, 1973. Jan has two sons: Thomas Coburn and daughter-in-law Robin and Christian Potter. Thomas and Robin blessed Jan with the apple of her eye, her granddaughter Olivia. Jan started working for the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office in February of 1998 under the Pattison administration. She served under Sheriff Pattison, Sheriff Richardson, and currently Sheriff Mitchell for a total of 24 years.
Before serving at the Sheriff’s Office Jan was employed at Hodges Gardens state park. Jan enjoys making jewelry, spending time with her family, and taking care of her mother. Jan loves working for the Sheriff’s Office and has been responsible for training many new dispatchers. Jan will leave a gap in the dispatch office that will take a lot to be filled. Jan has a big, generous heart and loves to help anyone who needs it. She always has a positive attitude and handles anything thrown her way with a smile. Lucky for us Jan will continue serving on a part-time basis as needed.
Sheriff Mitchell and the entire staff at the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office wish Jan the best in her retirement and thank her for her dedicated service over the last 24 years.
