News yesterday that the longest serving Glasgow Police Officer currently on the force is retiring effective today (Nov 1st) Captain Joey Crews announced his retirement in a press release to area media.  Captain Crews began his career at the Glasgow Police Department as a Police Dispatcher in 1989. In 1992,  he attended the Department of Criminal Justice Training  for basic training as a police officer. As an officer, Crews was the first Glasgow Police Department officer to attend training and  become qualified as a Field Training Officer in order to train new officers in the field following graduation from the academy.. In 1997, he was promoted to Sergeant. Over the remainder of his career, promotions lead me from the rank of Sergeant to that of Lieutenant and Captain with the majority of those years being held in the Street Division.  Since 2009 he has worked in the support division, with the public information office. Crews says he has been privileged to serve under some of the most qualified Police Chiefs that expected nothing but the highest level of professionalism and dedication. Those expectations created some of the best officers that I have had the pleasure to work beside. I am honored to have been part of the history ofthe Glasgow Police Department.
