Chief Bob Harrison said all of these professional accomplishments and accolades, pale in comparison to the real impact Captain Greenwell has had on the men and women of this agency. Glenn has been a very competent, dedicated professional, and personal friend that will be missed. We will all greatly miss his contribution to the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department and to the City of Texarkana, Arkansas. We wish him well as he transitions to the next phase in his lifetime of retirement.
