About the Guest
Glenn A. Walp "was a member of the Pennsylvania State Police for nearly 29 years, retiring from the agency as commissioner, holding the rank of colonel and a member of the governor's cabinet. After retiring from the state police, he accepted positions as Chief of Police in the City of Bullhead City, Arizona and the Arizona Capitol Police. He then accepted an offer by the University of California to be the Office Leader of the Office of Security Inquiries at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Because of his skilled investigative efforts at Los Alamos, he was assigned as a personal consultant to the President of the University of California. Dr. Walp is currently employed part-time as an adjunct professor and consultant for Penn State University in their Justice and Safety Institute, teaching police executives nationally and internationally." Glenn A. Walp is the author of Implosion at Los Alamos.
According to the book description of Implosion at Los Alamos, it "is a frightening exposé that reveals failed security, crime, cover-ups and corruption at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Ground Zero for America's strongest defense against rogue nations and terroristic entities. Former Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Glenn Walp was hired by "the lab" to investigate crime and lapsed security at the lab post-9/11. Walp uncovered the theft/loss of over $3 million in taxpayer property, including nearly 400 computers. Certain lab leaders, concerned that exposure of these and other administrative and criminal debacles could jeopardize lucrative government contracts, opposed his efforts at every turn. Notwithstanding, Walp and his two partners remained dauntless. Walp proposes - through well-documented facts that because of the lab's failed security throughout the first decade of the 21st century, America and her allies are vulnerable to those who may now be in possession of America's darkest nuclear weapons secrets."
