Sigourney’s Police Chief has been honored with the State’s first annual “Innovation, Determination and Excellence in Action award for reducing substance abuse in South East Iowa. Police Chief Allen Glandon was announced recently as the winner of the award for work he had done as police chief and in the community says Dale Woolery with the Governors Office of Drug Control Policy. Wollery says the thing that stood out to them was Glandon pushing through an adoption of the State’s first local keg registration ordinance that led to a reduction in underage binge drinking in the Sigourney area. Wollery says they created the award to honor those who were doing innovative things in substance abuse prevention. Glandon says he feels honored and feels he shouldn’t be the only one to get the award, because he says he is apart of a team who did the work as well. Glandon will be presented the award in a ceremony at a later date.
