Sr. Officer Glimp was tasked with organizing a room of seized property, found property and police evidence; all of which had very little organization. The shelves and storage areas were almost full and were in desperate need of sorting.

Furthermore, Sr. Officer Glimp set-up training, PowerPoints and officer cheat sheets in an effort to better educate and create a system of integrity. Due to his attention to detail and many hours spent alone in the property room, this once troubled area has been transformed into a smooth running division within our police department.
