The reception was attended by hundreds of community members and law enforcement officers from across the state.  Levelland City Manager, Rick Osburn, congratulated Cowan noting he is retiring as one of the longest tenures with the City of Levelland.  Cowan is retiring after 38 years in law enforcement and all 38 years have been in the City of Levelland.  Cowan has been Police Chief for the past 14 years.  He started as a patrol officer and was promoted to a sergeant after a brief 18 months with the department and worked in that position before he was promoted to Assistant Police Chief in 1985 and served in that position until 2002 when he was named Police Chief.

He and his wife Sandra will open a new business in downtown Levelland later this summer.

Cowan was surrounded by his family for the reception.
