In addition to his enforcement duties, Glenn teaches Hazardous Materials Awareness at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy, is a national General Hazardous Materials and Cargo Tank Inspection Instructor, and is a Doppler RADAR/LIDAR instructor. 


His law enforcement career began with the Estherville Police Department in 1997, where he worked as a reserve peace officer while attending Iowa Lakes Community College.  After graduating with an associate of science degree in criminal justice, he was hired by the Scranton Police Department, where he served as a police officer until he was hired by Iowa Motor Vehicle Enforcement.  Over the course of his twenty-one year career, Glenn has also worked part-time for the Greene County Sheriff's Office, the Anita Police Department, the Madrid Police Department, and the State Center Police Department (where he's currently employed as a part-time police officer).   


Glenn lives in Ames and is engaged to be married to his best friend, Lashelle Peterson, who is an emergency room nurse at Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.  His hobbies include spending time with family and friends, motorcycling, and police work.”
