In Memoriam: Honoring Fallen Officer

Sergeant Heather J. Glenn, 47, was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a domestic violence suspect at Perry County Memorial Hospital on the morning of Monday, July 3, 2023.

Heather was born on June 9, 1976, in Owensboro, Kentucky. She was the daughter of Bob and Jayne (Claise) Glenn. She was a 1994 graduate of Tell City High School. Heather obtained her Criminal Justice Degree from Vincennes University and also graduated from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.

Heather was a Sergeant with the Tell City Police Department, following in her father’s footsteps. Heather served as the department’s taser instructor and was a field training officer and mentor. She was a member of the Fraternal Order of Police. Whether in a uniform or not, Heather was always helping out in her community. She was everything a good police officer should be and treated each person with dignity and respect no matter the situation.
She loved her rescue pets and her favorite Nephew Trace more than anything. When she was not out protecting and serving her community you could find Heather mowing grass, kayaking, shopping for a new pair of shoes, or attending live concerts.

Heather enjoyed her firearms and her collection of vehicles. Survivors include her parents, Bob and Jayne Glenn; her brother, Jason Glenn (Brooke); and her favorite nephew, Trace Glenn.
