Following the war Grevemberg was employed in the sale of real estate, insurance, stocks and bonds, and in the building of homes on speculation. Appointed Superintendent of the State Police in 1952 by Governor Robert Kennon, Grevemberg's strict enforcement of state laws, in particular those prohibiting gambling, prostitution, and narcotics trafficking, quickly earned him a reputation for honesty.
In 1956 Grevemberg ran as a Democrat for governor and lost. Four years later, after switching his registration from Democrat to Republican in 1959, he again ran unsuccessfully for governor.
