Glenn Scruggs, Assistant Chief of Police for the Chattanooga Police Department, is running for Tennessee State Senate because he sees the value in the communities he has grown up in, lived in, and served, and is determined to make sure these communities and families have every opportunity to prosper.
Born and raised by his parents and grandparents in Avondale, Glenn is a 25-year veteran of the police department, and often finds himself protecting the very streets he grew up on and the families he grew up with. Glenn has a strong sense of community, believing that members of our community matter to one another and to the whole. He believes in a shared faith that community members’ needs will be met through their commitment to take care of each other. When he's not working with community members, neighborhood associations and local organizations to help protect Chattanooga, Glenn spends time with his wife of 20 years and son. Glenn is a graduate of Brainerd High School and Belhaven University.
