Meet the Chief
Chief Jeff Glazier was sworn in as Ponce Inlet’s Police Chief on July 9, 2020. He previously worked for the Atlanta Police Department where he retired at the rank of Deputy Chief after 27 years of service. In one of his most challenging assignments, he oversaw the 900 men and women in the Field Operations Division that responded to 911 calls throughout the 134 sq. mile city. During his four year tenure as FOD Commander, Atlanta saw a 13% reduction (3,758 crimes) in overall crime. Chief Glazier was critical of the criminal justice system and the ability for repeat violent offenders to return to the street. He often spoke to the media about the need for accountability among judges, prosecutors, and parole officers.
Chief Glazier is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, The Police Executive Research forum, The Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange, Notre Dame Monogram Club, and Notre Dame Alumni Association.
Chief Glazier holds a Master of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Georgia State University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Notre Dame. He is a graduate of Leadership Atlanta, the Police Executive Research Forum's Senior Management Institute for Police, the DEA Drug Unit Commander's Academy, and the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar. In 2013 and 2015, Chief Glazier traveled to Israel as part of the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange Program to share leadership ideas with Israeli Police Commanders.
Chief Glazier works everyday to keep the citizens and visitors of Ponce Inlet safe.
