Theodis Brown Sr. is the Fire Chief of Castle Point Fire Protection Association in St. Louis County, MO, and oversees the department’s Fire Corps program. Chief Brown is passionate about his community and has dedicated nearly five decades to public safety.

Chief Brown has a rich history in public safety and has served as both a firefighter and a police officer. He graduated from the St. Louis Police Academy in 1970 and formerly served as the Chief of Police and Fire Marshal in Kinloch. He is a member of the Missouri Peace Officers Association, the Missouri State Investigators Association, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the St. Louis Police Veterans Association, and was elected to serve on the St. Louis County Township Committee for three terms. He graduated from the St. Louis Fire Academy in 1978 and is a member of the Fire Marshals’ Association of Missouri. He is also a trustee and chair of the Castle Point Community Association and publishes the St. Louis Private Eye Newspaper.

Chief Brown’s background in both law enforcement and the fire service gives him a rare skillset to tackle problems. He is very active in the community and is working hard to improve Castle Point through citizen involvement. His initiatives include litter pick-up, beautification projects, property maintenance, and maintaining the exterior of abandoned buildings.

As head of the Castle Point Fire Corps program, Chief Brown oversees the efforts of the department’s non-operational volunteers. With the mission of stopping fires before they start, Fire Corps members organize important fire prevention programs and public education initiatives. Volunteers also provide departmental support through bookkeeping, data management, fundraising, and grant writing.

In addition to the Fire Corps program, the department engages youth through its junior firefighter program. A musician since the age of eight, Brown is involved with the department’s band program which he hopes to expand to include the junior volunteers.

Brown has been recognized for his many years service and is listed in the International Biographical Centre’s Outstanding People of the 21st Century and in the 30th edition of Who’s Who of American Law.
