Dozens of people converged on the Gravette Police Station last Friday to meet, greet and wish Trent Morrison well on his retirement which begins Wednesday of this week. The reception was also attended by many local and area law enforcement officials to honor their fellow officer who is ending more than 21 years as chief of the Gravette department. Trent, 50, has been in law enforcement 29 years, all of it served in Benton County. He began his career in 1983 at Sulphur Springs, where he served until February of 1985 when he became a member of the Benton County Sheriff’s Department. Five years later he served more than a year with the Bella Vista department, which at that time was a division of the County Sheriff’s Department. He began his long career of service to Gravette and the area in June of the following year, and it was because of that stellar service that his reception was filled with many expressions of thanks and plaudits.
