Today Night Patrolman Glissman's daughter came into Greendale Police Department. The 11 year old survivor of Officer Glissman is now 84 years old. She related to me how proud her father was being in his uniform. She said he walked (no patrol car) and received calls for service by the dispatcher flicking the street lights on and off. She saw the memorial on this page (at the PD where we have it printed out) and was very touched. Thank you ODMP.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 69th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
