Frisco Police Department and campus resource officer, Glen Hubbard, is retiring from the police force after 28 years. There will be a new SRO on campus starting Monday.

From field training to being a detective, school resource officer (SRO) Glen Hubbard has done it all. And after 28 years in the police force, Hubbard is officially retiring.

“Well, the biggest decision was another opportunity that just kind of fell in my lap. I was going to retire in two years regardless,” Hubbard said. “But when I saw an opportunity fell into my lap and I had. It’s one of those things you don’t take it now. It’s probably not going to be available again. So it was just just one of those deals, those timing, basically.”

If Hubbard can take one lesson away from being an SRO, it is seeing the good in people.

“It’s that everybody’s pretty much good. You know, most people are good,” Hubbard said. “There’s just a few peppered in there that cause the problems as a cop over the years. You know, you kind of get tainted to humanity. But being SRO brings you back to reality a little bit and helps you become more human. I think. So that being just getting to know everybody and being around the kids and stuff like that and the students and watching them grow has been very rewarding for me.”

Assistant principal Jason Harris wishes Hubbard luck in his new position.

“You know, my heart goes out to him and to our students and to the staff because he’s going to leave,” Harris said. “It’s going to be an empty void for us here at Liberty High School. It’s going to be so hard not to feel that role of his. But I wish him the best of luck.”

Although Hubbard is moving on to new things, he will always remember his time on campus.

“Well, I just want to say thank you to everybody for letting me be your guard dog,” he said. “It’s been an honor to represent the Frisco Police Department at Liberty High School for this time and how great everybody has been towards me and helped me out in that transition and all the problems that we’ve had in the past. And it’s just been really good.”
