The first Chief Constable
On the occasion of 25 years of service the inhabitants of Hastings showed their appreciation of his work and their high esteem and respect in which they held him, at a banquet held in his honour at the Queens Hotel, with a handsome illuminated address and a cheque for 400.

Up to 1883 he was known as Superintendent Glenister, but when the Hastings Improvement Act came into force that year, his title was changed to Chief Constable, making the first holder of that office. As part of his official duties he escorted a number of royal visitors to Hastings, and received gifts marking such occasions from Emperor Frederick of Germany, Empress Edgamie, and the Prince Imperial.
